Alexandria Itinerary - Tours and Activities
Alexandria is the second-largest city in Egypt and is located on the Mediterranean coast. It was founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC and was home to the Library of Alexandria, one of the largest and most important libraries in the ancient world. Alexandria is a popular tourist destination, and it is home to many historical and cultural landmarks, including the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, the Roman Theater, and the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Most people take a day trip from Cairo and see a few highlights, but spending 2-3 days here to experience the city to its fullest is definitely worthwhile.
Part of the job of a travel agent is to save clients time and money. I looked through hundreds of tours and picked out the best tours to book in various categories that are both the best in quality and price.
