During our tour of Alexandria, the bus stopped at the recently refurbished 15th century Qait Bey Fort on the Mediterranean Sea. This area was considerably cleaner than places that we passed by. The fort was built on the original site of the Pharos Lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Disappointingly, it was not open to the public.
Our stop was brief. Just a few moments take pictures. There wasn't anything to do other than take a few pictures and be hounded by people trying to sell us cheap souvenirs.
