See that is Alexandria the second largest city. Alexandria is Egypt’s largest seaport, serving approximately 80% of Egypt’s imports and exports. It is an important industrial centre because of its Natural Gas and Oil Pipelines from Zuez. Before Alexander the great ‘founded’ it in 331BC, a port city was built on the Nile Delta that made it a vital trading hub of the ancient world. Today, Alexandria offers fascinating insights into its proud Greek past, in addition to interesting mosques, the casino strip of the Corniche, some lovely gardens and both modern and traditional hotels.
