    Qattara Depression and the North Coast

    Alexandria, El-Alamein, Marsa Matrouh, Siwa Oasis

    Follow the footsteps of Alexander the Great on the Egyptian North Coast before heading for the Alexandrian journey through the barren desert. Start by exploring the greco-roman heritage of Alexandria before moving on to the Qattara Depression, the lowest point in Egypt, an extraordinary landscape of shifting dunes and rare plants. This is where the legendary movie Ice Cold in Alex was shot. After traversing the Qattara Depression, you'll head southwards to Siwa oasis, a national protected area. Explore the temple of Amun, where Alexander the Great came to consult the oracle of Siwa, take a dip at Cleopatra's pool, and discover the salt-fortress of Shali. Drive back to the north coast and make a first stop in Marsa Matrouh, experience the pristine beaches of the White Med, and visit the cave which the Desert Fox used as his headquarters in the WWII. Move East to El-Alamein and visit the WWII War Museum, and the armies memorials before heading back to Alexandria.
