Your must-visit destination for history & culture

The only way to understand the depth of Alexandria is to soak up the city’s unique vibe. Set between the desert and the sea and one of the finest centres of learning in the ancient world, Alexandria is famed for its striking harbour, luring poets, musicians, artists, novelists, and travellers across the centuries. This four-season destination – that offers a unique blend of European and Middle Eastern culture – is home to balmy summers and cold winters and is fast becoming Egypt's cultural nexus.
