Kicking off with the daring 'Feseekh,' a fermented mullet considered a delicacy here, Alexandria’s cuisine is an invitation to the brave and the curious alike. The city’s culinary landscape is dotted with exotic ingredients like dukkah, molokhia, and fresh Mediterranean seafood, offering flavors not found elsewhere.

Cruise lines such as MSC and Celebrity make Alexandria a highlight, planning shore excursions that allow travelers to wander through Pompey’s Pillar, the catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, and the stunning modern Bibliotheca Alexandrina. These excursions are thoughtfully designed to connect visitors with the enduring legacies of Alexandria’s past, providing deep dives into the city's enduring stories and architectural wonders.
