The seaport city of Alexandria was the seat of Ancient Egypt's last great house, the Ptolemies. Today, you can explore Old Alexandria while enjoying modern restaurants and entertainment downtown and in the Montazah Palace area. Booking flights to Alexandria through ebookers saves you money, ensuring you have more to spend on the fascinating exhibits and lively entertainment you'll find in this graceful and venerable city. Using the holiday planner tools saves time and helps you find great deals.
Borg El Arab Airport is located about twenty-five miles southwest of Alexandria's city centre and is the only major airport serving Alexandria while the Alexandria International Airport is closed for redevelopment. Shuttle buses and taxis service this airport, but it is not on a major bus line or train line. Do what you can to arrange for car hire or shuttle service before you arrive to minimize transportation difficulty. If you take a taxi, make certain you negotiate your fare clearly with your driver before setting out. While you may see a meter in the taxi, it may not be functional. You should also allow for extra time and crowded circumstances throughout the airport.
Once you arrive in downtown Alexandria, the blue skies and sea make all the trouble worthwhile. You can explore more than two millennia of history in Old Alexandria, and then have much of it interpreted for you at the New Library of Alexandria. The long coastline boasts beaches lined with beach clubs and hotels, all of which have a vibrant night life. Wander through the city and the long café-lined corniches along the beach to enjoy the atmosphere of this ancient, yet modern, city. Alexandrian winters average 20°C during the day and 10°C in the evenings, and summer temperatures in this Mediterranean-cooled city rarely top 32°C. Bring a sweater at any time of year, as the sea breezes can be quite brisk.
Alexandria is a wonderful city to visit to experience history and culture. Let ebookers help make your visit to this city into the romantic adventure of a lifetime. Book your flights to Alexandria through ebookers for the best deals on flights and hotels.
