Wonderful Museums of Alexandria

In Egypt, a country that hosts a huge number of museums, Alexandria, with its old diverse history, has some quite magnificent museums illustrating different periods of the history of the city and various aspects of the life of Alexandria.

Today, we would be pointing out some of the most interesting museums in Alexandria that we recommend for tourists who travel to Egypt to visit and explore during their holidays.

The Greco Roman Museum

The Greco Roman Museum is perhaps the most interesting museum in Alexandria. Established during the Greek period and flourished under the rule of the Romans, the Greco Roman period witnessed the most glorious days of Alexandria. The museum hosts many displays illustrating this remarkable period since the establishment of the city and till the beginning of the Islamic era. The Greco Roman Museum is often included in many tours to Egypt.

Although the museum is closed for many years, the director of the Greco Roman Museum asserted that it would be officially reopened very soon. Many tours to Egypt, which include a visit to Alexandria, would have a visit to the museum scheduled for its notable historical significance.

The Greco Roman Museum was officially opened in October 1892 as one of the oldest in Egypt. However, due to the large number of displays and exhibits, the museums was transferred to its current location in Fouad Street during the reign of Khedive Abbas Helmi II. With 11 huge halls and 27 exhibition galleries, the Greco Roman Museum grab the attention with many tourists who travel to Egypt.

The Museum of the New Library of Alexandria

The ideas of establishing the Museum of Antiquities in the Library of Alexandria emerged when a group of historical pieces, dating back to the Roman and Byzantine periods, was discovered in the location were the new library of Alexandria was founded. Today, this museum welcomes many travelers coming from all over the globe to enjoy their vacations in Egypt.

The museum was officially opened in October 2002. The displays were carefully chosen to reflect the diversity of the history of Alexandria including displays from the Pharaonic, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, and contemporary periods. There is also a wonderful collection of antiquities that was discovered under the sea in and around Alexandria. A visit to the museum is quite recommended for any travelers spending his vacations in Egypt who is fond of history and art.

Top Solo Travel Deals

Here are our 5 updated tips on how to find top solo travel deals.

1. Consider a substitute destination. For example, if you are looking for castles and centuries-old history, compare prices in both Western and Eastern Europe. Dreaming of the South Pacific? Price the Cook Islands against the higher rates in Tahiti.

2. Travel off-season. There are two big mistakes here. First, many travelers don’t know that rates go down as fast as the second week in Sept. In the south of France, you can get up to 50% off that early. It is just before many hotels close for the season. Secondly, you must adjust off-season plans not only by time of year but for climate. For example, the Caribbean rates go down as the heat soars. As a result, beach lovers can find good prices in July and Aug. In contrast, Paris has top discounts of almost half in the midst of winter’s chill.

3. Get out your calculator. Compare every rate for which you qualify as most are not cumulative. So if you are a student or senior, government or corporate employee, see what is the lowest price that you can get. You may find that publicly available discounts can exceed some affinity programs.

4. Gift yourself. How does this work? Most travelers look right away at their rewards programs and frequent flyer accounts for flight deals or upgrades. Do take a look at the restaurant deals, but watch for geographic limits. Where those work, you can save a lot on trips since meal costs are often overlooked in budgeting. Last minute deals may still have a high single supplement but can have a low enough overall rate to be of interest.

5. Think like an international finance guru. Look to see where the dollar/your currency buys the most value. Canada and US exchange rates are a recent example. Although the dollar buys more in the UK than it did, the conversion is still a factor in already expensive London.

The good news is that as solo travelers increase more travel providers are adjusting prices to attract individual travelers. However, no single supplement specials go fast so do book early. Watch out for our updated tips on how to see the world no matter the size of your budget!
