Founded by Alexander the Great in 332 BC, Alexandria, also known as “The Pearl of the Mediterranean,” was once one of the most prominent cities of the ancient world, known as the capital of the arts and science at the time. It is home to the Pharos Lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, as well as the enormous Library of Alexandria. Branded for its cooling sea breeze and golden-sand beaches, remnants of the City’s greatness can still be found here.
