It was a beautiful trip to Alexandria. The driver and guide were very nice people. The tour guide did a great job with her explanations during the tour and we learned a lot from her. We ended the day with a nice lunch at a restaurant with a nice view of the Mediterranean Sea. It was a wonderful day!

It's just one of those experience we will never forget, the drive from Cairo to Alexandria. The Catacombs and the Citadels were totally amazing place to visit and not forgetting the Great Library of Alexandria and Pompey's Pillars. Each place have great historical moments which gave us a wonderful feeling being there in person to witness it and also take great photos for our memories.
