Egypt - Alexandria & the Mediterranean Coast (PDF Chapter)
This is the Alexandria & the Mediterranean Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Egypt guidebook.

- taste the last drops of 19th-century grandeur at a period cafe in Alexandria, and stroll the streets and souqs of soulful Anfushi at night
- eat your fill of simply grilled fresh seafood along the shore at Aboukir
- restaurants & accommodation
