Highlights of Alexandria

Lying northwest of the Nile Delta, Alexandria is the largest port in the Arab Republic of Egypt, one of the major summer resorts on the Mediterranean sea. Depart from the pier for a drive through the colorful streets of Alexandria viewing beautiful architecture and experiencing the charming aura and nostalgia of yesteryear.

The bronze statue of Mohamed Ali on his horse, founder of modern Egypt, decorates Mansheya square. Few steps away is the elegant marble edifice dedicated to the Unknown Soldier, its guards of honor at attention on either side. From here, a short drive away is the Mosque of Abu El Abbas, one of Alexandria’s Islamic landmarks characterized by its tall minarets and four domes. Across from the Mosque square, the Qait Bey Fort, built on the original site of the Pharos, Alexandria’s lighthouse which was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, will be your next stop for photographs.

Enjoy a refreshment at a local venue and then enjoy a scenic drive to the Montaza Palace Gardens where you will view the summer residence palace of the former king of Egypt, Farouk. Driving along the corniche on the return to the ship a short photo opportunity will take place at the world famous Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the New Library of Alexandria.
