Alexandria flight - pearl of the Med
Cheap flights to Alexandria bring you to the pearl of the Mediterranean, a city founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC and today the second largest city in Egypt. Bustling and modern yet still retaining a French colonial atmosphere. Alexandria has miles of white sandy beaches to tempt sun-seekers and casinos on the glamorous Corniche. Alexandria was most famous in ancient times for the Pharos lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the world, and its library which drew scholars from far and wide. Despite the sea claiming part of the ancient city, Alexandria still has a few gems up her sleeve. As well as Pompey’s Pillar and the Greco-Roman Museum for interest, there are also the Roman catacombs to explore and a 15th century coastal fort. Alexandria flights also bring you within reach of the famous WW2 battleground and cemetery at El Alamein.
