Discover books, mosques and beaches in lovely Alexandria
Travel in the footsteps of Alexander the Great in Alexandria, Egypt's modern beach city that was once the pearl of the Mediterranean. Venture underground to explore atmospheric Roman catacombs and marvel at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, a great feat of architecture built to house eight million books. Walk through spice-laden souqs, admire an incredible mosque and visit the medieval Fort Qaitbey, built on the site of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Short and sweet, this trip to Alexandria provides an insight into thousands of years of conquest and civilisation.
