Alex remains one of Africa's best destinations, the wonderful Mediterranean climate, the sea and the real feeling of a resort. Timeless and charming, once you have been, you will come back.

Very Good
Nice weather if come during spring as it not so hot. the sea make it so beautiful and the buildings design make the city little bit elegant. but, the attitude of some of her locals surely need to be warned. the city's views are somewhat contemplated by the rubbishy and bad odors

Good place for short vacations for family and friends, Pablo cafe and restaurant is perfect to spend some times with friends and family. Aroos el Bahr seafood restaurant is perfect for people who love seafood.

Very Good
Monuments, museums and seafood are great. Coffee shops by the beach are also a nice place to meet friends. The city is too crowded and the traffic is terrible during rush hours . It is better to make your visit on a weekend.

Why do you recommend Alexandria for food?

I've had the best sandwiches ever in 34 years of life at Alban Swisra! :) Alexandria also has: - The most renowned Houda Gondol (amazing sea food platter, for the lowest prices, EVER). - The famous Abdou Farag; best sea food past you can taste. Best fish quality/variety. - The ultimately famous "Balba'a Village" for grilled food & Sea food varieties; every thing there is amazing, even salads! - Freisier patisseries... beside the university's complex... cozy place, delicious patisseries, friendly staff Try any of these; i'm sure you'd find something to make you fall in love with Alex for! ;)

Alexandria is a mix between more the one culture, greek, italian, British and a little bit of frensh touch ! You can see that through the old buildings and roads, there is a lot of greek and italian people there and they have their business, cafés and NGOs

my child had a balloon and we were walking in the street and suddenly it fly and we kept walking without paying attention , but a man ran after us bringing the balloon back

Just walk down El Corniche in any direction, but July is too hot for some, January is better

In Zafir Restaurant in El Max. Superb.
