    The must-see site in town, a very modern and attractive new building of many levels and a big commitment of this country to learning, as well as to commemorate the important history of the long-gone ancient library. It is beautiful and also contains art expos.

    One of the stops on our tour of the city, this was the site of the ancient lighthouse that was one of the wonders of the ancient world. An earthquake destroyed the lighthouse and centuries later this fort was built to protect the city. Right at the entrance to the old harbor, some good views. Lots of sun.

    We covered this place towards the end of our day tour. It is a unique site which was discovered when a donkey fell into a hole. Our guide explained to us details about the funeral process of the dead and how the bodies went down through the three floors. There are some Greco Roman carvings as well as Egyptian carvings at the end depicting the steps at the last stage. There was an arrangement for the relatives to visit the site regularly later too, and sit and dine.

    The floors of the catacomb are dark and steps are steep and circular. Can be a tiring experience for elders.

    We stopped here to take pics only - did not get to do much exploring. But the road looked lovely! One side had shops/restaurants and the other had the Mediterranean Sea! One can also see the Citadel at Qaitbay in the distance!

    Would have loved to visit in the evening and walk around.

    This was the first place our guide took us to. The palaces are located at a slight distance and there are pathways to reach them between the gardens. We saw the palaces, the bridge built by the king, his roman style structure where he used to have tea, private beach, etc. Our guide arranged for a golf cart on the way back from the centre of the site to the gate.

    Nothing very out of the ordinary at this site though.

    This is the biggest site of ruins in the city. It's extensive and includes an open theater that is still used for concerts. There are ruins of shops and houses, including an area where some very good mosaics are no display. Also some monuments that have been extracted from the sea. Big area so you won't feel crowded.

    One of the most ornate buildings in the city, you will find it in the center of town and on an open square. We saw it from our tour bus, pointed out by our guide. Did not go in but we were impressed with the beauty.

    The city's biggest and most historic mosque, set on an open square so you can get a good view. We saw it from our tour bus, passed by too quickly, but it was magnificent, one of the most important sites in town.

    This museum has many artifacts but some of the disploys are in the dark basement which are difficult to see if there are more than a few people viewing. The scuptures discovered under water were fascinating.

    The bridge and the beach are a sight to see but beware of the overprices beverages and kids who ask for more tips.
