Alexandria is the second-largest city in Egypt, otherwise known as the "Pearl of the Mediterranean", and has an atmosphere more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern. Explore this port city and learn about its rich cultural history, including visits to the National Museum, the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, Pompey's Pillar and the New Bibliotheca. From Alexandria, follow the route of Field Marshal Montgomery to El Alamein, visit the Commonwealth War Cemetery and see the fields of battle where Rommel's infamous WWII advance on Cairo was halted.
