The Catacombs of Shouqafa
Rediscovered in 1900 when a donkey tumbled onto their path, the Catacombs offer an intimate look into the burial practices of ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman civilizations and are considered a 'must see' by both visitors and locals.
Shopping at San Stefano Grand Plaza
Located in the same 29-storey tower as the Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria, San Stefano is home to 180 retail outlets and a 10-screen movie theatre. A nice change of pace from sightseeing as well as a glimpse into contemporary Egypt.
