Saw a glimpse of it in passing

Was transiting Suez Canal on board a ship, so I must clarify that I did NOT enter the site but just had a glimpse of the same in passing. Seemed like a very sorry affair.

One of the best maintained tourist destinations. Can tell you a lot about Alexandria's history with the right tour guide.

A 30 meter high pillar from 298 AD erected by Publius in honor of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. The site is a nice garden, where also a tomb can be found, some smaller remaining of a swimming pool and bath and two small sfynx statues.
