Egypt - Alexandria & the Mediterranean Coast (Chapter)
This is the Alexandria & the Mediterranean Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Egypt guidebook.
Egypt’s northern coastline draws summertime revelers who come to cool off in the sea air and splash in the water. Alexandria is the region’s hub, with ancient sights, terrific restaurants, and a distinctly different urban pulse than that of Cairo.
- tour the modern incarnation of an ancient wonder at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina
- stroll the streets and souqs (markets) of soulful Anfushi at night
- taste the last drops of Alexandria’s 19th-century grandeur at a period cafe
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Alexandria & around, Aboukir, Rosetta (Ar-Rashid), Mediterranean Coast, El Alamein and Sidi Abdel Rahman.
