Alexandria and Port Said are the two main gates to get to Egypt from the sea. Alexandria and its history are rooted in thousands of years of events, which have transformed the city. The town became famous in antiquity for the presence of the Lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the world. Port Said, recently, has acquired more importance for its strategic position: overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the city is a fundamental crossroads for the Suez Canal, an obligatory route for the Egyptian economy and tourism. From both locations, the pyramids are distant but easily accessible.
