Is Alexandria Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Situated on Egypt's Mediterranean coast, Alexandria is an exotic fusion of past and present, known for its rich tapestry of history and vibrant cultural scene. As one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities, it is home to various ancient attractions such as the Qaitbey Citadel, which stands on the site of the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Additionally, the city houses the iconic Bibliotheca Alexandrina, a modern tribute to the original Great Library of Alexandria.

Solo travel experience

In Alexandria, you should definitely visit the Alexandria Library, the Qaitbay Citadel, the Royal Jewelry Museum, the Greco-Roman Museum, and the Corniche promenade. Alexandria is known for its villas and cafes, as well as fresh seafood and Mediterranean atmosphere. Cafe Trianon is a place with excellent food and the atmosphere is incredible. Spend some time in Alexandria if you are looking for rest. There are fewer tourists here than in Luxor, Aswan, or Cairo. Learn some Arabic during your stay, even though some people speak English, it is less common than in Upper Egypt and Cairo.
