Interesting Cities Alexandria
Alexandria is Egypt's second large city, its largest seaport and its window onto the Mediterranean Sea. It is also renown for its varied cultural attractions and still existing touches of its past, some of the ruins still under the water.

Alexandria has a Mediterranean climate, with warm humid summers and mild rainy winters. Its primary promenade is the seaside Corniche. At the Western tip, lies the fort of QaitBay, built near the presumed site of the former legendry Lighthouse while new constructions of modern Alexandria fill the scenery of the Eastern shore. Signs of the old cultural scene, such as the French-style parks, buildings, occasional French street signs, few remaining Greek restaurants and cafés, still intermingle with modern Alexandria wherever you go.
