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.

    Nice to visit the icon of Alexandria.
    Good views of the Mediterranean Sea.

    Mostly neat and tidy, but some people were smoking in this historical monument.

    Interesting archeological site.
    Nice to see a part of ancient history in person.

    Few steps to go down, but easily manageable.

    Nice to see the process of mummification carved in stones.

    Visited it on the end of the day just before our trip back to Cairo. Well,the palace was closed already for visiting. Interesting gardens and quite a history.Built in 1892 and used for summer residence of King Farouk.
    Beautiful green gardens for summer relax.

    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 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.

    Well you know the lighthouse no longer exists. It tumbled down in an earthquake during the 14th Century. It was eventually replaced by the fort at the same site, as well as an expanded harber.

    The monastery is located some distance from Alexandria and getting there was an adventure in itself Google Maps was surprisingly good).
    The site is of significant importance to Christians as it hosts the relics of St. Minas. The place was busy with local tour groups. There is no entrance fee and the grounds were decorated with beautiful paintings and mosaics. There are also vendor booths with both religious items and local foods.

    The show was about the human body, but yet very interesting with very friendly staff and very Dolby Surround sound
