Alexandria: day trip from Cairo

Alexandria: day trip from Cairo

Founded by Alexander the Great, the city of Alexandria is one of the most modern cities in Egypt in spite of its fascinating role in ancient history. Located 2h 30m north from Cairo, this wonderful city is many times forgotten in a visit to Egypt.

During my last free day in the land of pharaohs, I decided to take a day trip from Cairo to this historical city that once was the centre of knowledge of the western world!
