Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    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 cathedral is the center of the Roman Catholic community in Alexandria currently very much involved in supporting refugees and migrants.

    The neo-Baroque style building dates from the 1850s. The impressive facade was added in 1927. The cathedral is dedicated to Catherine of Alexandria, according to legend a princess who lived in the fourth century AD, converted to Christianity and eventually was executed by the Roman rulers.

    Not only the peaceful setting is pleasant, but the beautifully decorated interior of the church as well.

    The body of Italian king Victor Emmanuel III is not longer buried here, but was repatriated to Italy in 2017.

    A part of a group of monasteries in Wadi Natrun, in the desert west to Delta, this monastery has a history originating in 4th century already. It is dedicated to St Bishuy, who is perhaps unknown in the West, but very popular in Egypt, where quite a few Copts bear this name.

    It is located not far from the road between Alexandria and Cairo.

    The monastery is surrounded by walls and houses several buildings, not only old ones, but also a big new church for the pilgrims as well as the tomb of a popular pope (patriarch) of the Copts, Shenuda III.

    Not only you don't pay to enter, but you can get a free simple meal of bread and broad bean, which is great.
