Why you have to visit Alexandria?

Alexandria, known as “The Pearl of the Mediterranean,” is one of the most captivating cities in Egypt and a popular tourist destination.
Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC. 
It was once the intellectual and cultural center of the ancient Mediterranean world, housing the famous Library of Alexandria and the Pharos Lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Destination

Qaitbay Citadel
A robust fortress dating back to the 15th century, stands impressively along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf al-Din Qa’it Bay laid its foundation in the year 1477 AD.
The Citadel is situated on the exact site of the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria, which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
It’s called the Catacombs of Kom El-Shuqafa, and it’s so impressive it’s listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages!
a whole series of tombs, statues, and all sorts of old artifacts from way back when the Pharaohs were holding funerals. 
You’ll see a mash-up of styles from the Hellenistic and early Imperial Roman times. 
It’s like a three-for-one deal, where you get to see how Roman, Greek, and Egyptian cultures all came together.
The Bibliotheca Alexandrina is a vast library and cultural center located on the city’s eastern harbor, This ultra-modern building is a tribute to the original Library of Alexandria, which was the largest and most significant library of the ancient world, The new Library houses millions of books, an Internet archive, several specialized libraries, four museums, a planetarium, and a manuscript restoration laboratory, Its unique architecture, featuring a giant sun disk, is a sight to behold.
Pompey’s Pillar is an ancient Roman triumphal column in Alexandria, Egypt.
Despite its name, the pillar has nothing to do with the Roman consul and general Pompey, who was famously defeated by Julius Caesar.
The monolith was actually erected in honor of Emperor Diocletian in the late 4th century AD.
