Alexandria Harbour EG961364jhp 
 Egypt Egyptian Alexandria city harbour eastern boats modern Mediterranean museum lost is no longer reminiscent of the ancient city from Pharaoh’s times and little of that ancient time remains. A few isolated sites can be visited and one of the most famous, the Lighthouse or Pharos is no longer and would have been in the far distant horizon of this photo of the Eastern Harbour where an old military fort built by Sultan Qaitbay in 1480 is thought to have been built on its foundations. With a distinctly European feel to it, it is sometimes offered as a day trip on a Cairo package but is seldom part of the main Nile packages.
