About Alexendria

Alexandria, the metropolitan capital of the Mediterranean is unique and splendid with beautiful beaches, ancient buildings, rich cultural heritage and a lot of places for you to explore. Known as the 'Pearl of the Mediterranean,' this ancient city dates back to 331 BCE and was founded by ‘Alexander the Great.‘ From a small port city, Alexandria developed drastically and is one of the most prosperous metropolitan cities of Egypt today. The city has everything in-store for you, whether you want a budget holiday or a luxurious getaway with the family. It is a two hours drive from the famous city of Cairo and easy to reach by flight too. It is a four-season destination and you can visit any time of the year. The winter season is pleasant, breezy and perfect for a romantic break. Summer is warm and the streets are always busy and lively. Visit during the spring and autumn seasons to feel the perfect mix of breezy summer and cool winter. Alexandria has a deep-rooted historical background and it is clearly visible in the city's diverse culture and remains of rich ancient architecture. Enjoy the city's amazing scenery, walk along the coastline and feel the breeze in your hair. Explore the gardens, castles and amazing restaurants, meet friendly locals and shop everything you would ever want. Dance away the night at vibrant nightclubs and make new friends. Alexandria is one city you will fall in love with. The city feels more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern and is the best place to learn the Arabic language.
