Alexandria is a port city of the Mediterranean Sea, in northern Egypt, founded in 331 BCE by Alexander the Great.
It was most famous in antiquity as the site of the Pharos, the great lighthouse, was considered to be one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, for the Temple of Serapis, the Serapion, which was part of the legendary library at Alexandria, as a seat of learning and, once, the largest and most prosperous city in the world.
It’s the major seaport in northern Egypt, in the Nile River delta, on a ridge that separates Lake Marriott from the Mediterranean Sea.
During this year, Alexandria Port is preparing to welcome tourists in a brand new shape altogether due completion of rehabilitation works for Cruise Terminal, in an official opening ceremony.
Alexandria Port owns the Third Cruise Terminal in the Mediterranean Sea, with a surface of 8725 square meters and a parking area with a capacity of 350 cars or 80 buses.
The rehabilitation of the Cruise Terminal was designed to reunite the elements of the history which made Alexandria Port famous since antiquity. In this way, the design plan comprises 2 architectonic styles: Pharaonic and Roman, giving the Cruise Terminal an artistic join.
