    Bibliotheca Alexandrina - The New Library of Alexandria

    10 reviews

    Not a whole lot to see, though the Sadat display was particularly interesting. The inside of the library itself is quite impressive, though you can visit in ~15 mins. Highlight was the cafe across the street right on the shoreline..... excellent shisha and views

    Lighthouse of Alexandria

    6 reviews

    The Lighthouse of Alexandria is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was a tall structure, probably near 400 feet, that shown a light to guide boats toward the city.

    1 review

    The tombs or Kim Al Shouqafa are something straight out of an Indiana Jones movie.

    Pompey's Pillar

    1 review

    Interesting contrast of ruins perched on a hill amid the urban sprawl. The Pillar was larger than we though, but apart from a couple other small Sphinxs there is not much else to see. Not a particularly large area, you can probably finish in ~30 mins.
