Afterwards, proceed to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, one of the most unusual architectural masterpieces of the 21st century. Before visiting the Montaza Palace, the summer house for the last king of Egypt, you will have a lunch at Fish Market restaurant.

Excellent location, good shopping, food court and play area for the kids. There is also a supermarket if you want to buy food and essentials. However, prices might be slightly more expensive than downtown Alexandria.
