In and Around Town
Alexandria National Museum
Alexandria National Museum nicely sums up the history of Alexandria in three Italianate floors.
It is the largest reading space in the world, including over 2000 chairs for potential readers.
Catacombs of Kom el-Shoqafa
Go down a winding stairway to see how deep the ancient Graeco-Romans tunnelled into the bedrock.
Take a walk through the green and flourishing alleys of the park and have a look at the old Salamlek hotel.
Built in the 1480s, the small citadel of Qaitbay overlooks Alexandria’s Eastern Harbour.
Walk along the Corniche, see the harbour, Stanley Beach down below and the elegant towers of the bridge.
