Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria was Egypt's capital for more than a thousand years. Today it has a far more relaxed atmosphere than the capital and has been named 'the cooler, less pushy sister of Cairo.'
The city is a perfect blend of European and Middle Eastern Culture and has the best of both worlds- the bustling, vibrancy of city life with the ability to escape to the beach at Al Mamurah. Alexandria is also renowned for its seafood and boasts some of the best seafood restaurants in Egypt.
