The UK ambassador to Egypt John Casson on Monday listed on his official Twitter account: @FCOJohnCasson 12 reasons to like Alexandria, Egypt's second-largest city.
Casson also posted photos of the city he captured himself. The ambassador used the hashtag #ReasonsToLikeAlexandria.
Here are 12 reasons why you should visit Alexandria, according to Casson:

4# Architectural treasures.
5# The calm of Montaza's gardens and sea views.

7# The tram- 1/2 LE for a ticket and it is not crowded, according to the Cairo-based ambassador.
8# Qaitbay Citadel - turbulent past, peaceful present…
9# Boats in the Minaa Al-Sharqiya- "Eastern Port."
10# Meeting place of faiths and civilisations.
