ALEXANDRIA, Egypt

The largest port in Egypt and the greatest summer resort in the Middle East. Located on the Mediterranean Sea north west of Delta, 225 km from Cairo by agricultural road and 221 Km by desert road.

Named after Alexander the Macedonian who ordered its foundation in 332 BC, on the site of a small village called Rhakotis to be in the capital of his reign in Egypt, a port near to his country and a Greek cultural centre.
Since its foundation, Alexandria remained for many centuries a centre of cultural radiation for the whole world. It occupied a remarkable place in the history of mankind.
Today Alexandria is considered the second capital of Egypt. It is distinguished by its strategic location, moderate climate and its beautifully fine sandy beaches which covers a large area between Agamy in the west and Abu Qeir in the east which made it worthy of its well merited title "Pearl of the Mediterranean".
Alexandria offers a diverse range of film locations from beaches to gardens, striking buildings and city scenes with ancient, historical and religious sites mixed within a contemporary city.
