Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt, with a population of 4.1 million, extending about 32 km (20 mi) along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in the north central part of the country. It is also the largest city lying directly on the Mediterranean coast. Alexandria is Egypt's largest seaport, serving approximately 80% of Egypt's imports and exports. It is an important industrial center because of its natural gas and oil pipelines from Suez. Alexandria is also an important tourist resort.

Alexandria was founded around a small pharaonic town c. 331 BC by Alexander the Great. It remained Egypt's capital for nearly a thousand years, until the Muslim conquest of Egypt in AD 641, when a new capital was founded at Fustat (later absorbed into Cairo). Ancient Alexandria was best known for the Lighthouse of Alexandria (Pharos), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; its library (the largest in the ancient world; now replaced by a modern one); and the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages. Ongoing maritime archaeology in the harbor of Alexandria, which began in 1994, is revealing details of Alexandria both before the arrival of Alexander, when a city named Rhacotis existed there, and during the Ptolemaic dynasty.

From the late 19th century, Alexandria became a major center of the international shipping industry and one of the most important trading centers in the world, both because it profited from the easy overland connection between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, and the lucrative trade in Egyptian cotton.

I am not against the simple way the lady guide is putting things, but i do find it unprofessional to speak of personal issues ( like mentioning where her school " Lycee Francis" ) that happens to be close to where I lived when i was in Alexandria University... I also do not mind her simple perspective when it comes to the origins of the Egyptian 25th January Revolution, but the way it was explained sounded too naive, and gives the impression that we revolted just cause of Khaled Saeed. Especially that nowadays the Page for Khaled Saeed is run by the banned ex-ruling party the mistakenly named Muslim Brotherhood. I would rather she had good conversational English, and would not divert from the Alexandrian rich history.... I love Alexandria. Thanks for the video... please try matching a narrator in the future and have no politics in such videos
