Car Rental in Alexandria
General Information about Alexandria
Alexandria is the largest port of Egypt and the second largest city in the country (first is Cairo), situated on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. It is known worldwide thanks to the Pharos lighthouse, damaged in 1303, the famous Royal Library of Alexandria, and a turbulent history of romance of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, which began in the beautiful city of Alexandria.
Today Alexandria is the second city in Egypt in terms of population and economic importance. You will find here a modern international airport, a large commercial port, a university and a new library built on the site of the former one.
You can easily get to all those places with a rental car booked through Economy Car Rentals.

The centre of the city is now located further west than previously and is situated in the area of an old Roman city, on foundations of which a medieval Arab city was built. The walls of the latter survived in perfect condition until the end of the eighteenth century, but unfortunately until today little is left of them.
The oldest district of the city, Anfoushi, is located in the part connecting the mainland with the former island of Pharos, and it used to be called ‘the Turkish city’. Not far from there lies a fifteenth-century fort, which was built on the site of the legendary Pharos lighthouse, which was destroyed by an earthquake. It houses the Maritime Museum and the oldest mosque in the city.
