Jend. started a post about Alexandria and I was amazed that there are no good ideas about what to do there!
We will be there for one full day (from a cruise ship). We will already have spent several days in Cairo and certainly don't want to drive 3 hours over to Cairo and back.
So we were thinking Alexandria would be an interesting Egyptian city to explore.
We're not expecting another Cairo, but would appreciate your suggestions about what to do, where to go, what to eat (of course).
Hmm, maybe this would be better addressed on the Alexandria Forum? But the Cairo is where I always read everything about Egypt and feel at home so I thought I'll try here first.
By the way, thank you all for all your comments, trip reports and suggestions. I have been reading up for a year now, and we will be there in about 55 days (who's counting!)
