<p>Alexandria is a Mediterranean port city in Egypt. During the Hellenistic period, it was home to a lighthouse ranking among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World as well as a storied library. Today the library is reincarnated in the disc-shaped, ultramodern Bibliotheca Alexandrina. The city also has Greco-Roman landmarks, old-world cafes, and sandy beaches. Its 15th-century seafront Qaitbay Citadel is now a museum. Founded by its namesake Alexander the Great, the city of Alexandria was once ruled by Cleopatra and is amongst Egypt&#39;s most historical cities. Whilst many ancient ruins still remain all around Alexandria, it is true to say that you need to know exactly where to look to find the best-surviving structures and monuments. Much of Alexandria stands next to the Mediterranean Sea and offers visiting tourists plenty of stunning stretches of coastline and sandy beaches.</p>
