Drive along the Mediterranean Sea 110 km from the city of Alexandria considered as one of the most beautiful areas along the Egyptian coasts to reach the small village of El Alamein (meaning the two worlds in Arabic). In 1942 the Allied forces under the command of British General Montgomery put a halt to the advance of Nazi Africa Corps who considered El Alamein the gateway to Alexandria and the key to the control of the African continent. The Allied victory in the battle of El Alamein marked the beginning of the end for the Axis Powers in North Africa, crushing the mystique surrounding the "Desert Fox", German Field Marshal Rommel, whose force of tanks had previously proved invisible.
The Battle of El Alamein was one of the most violent as well as most important confrontations during 2nd World War. The first stop will be the Military Museum containing displays of weapons, military garb and tanks. Descriptions of the actions of Montgomery, Rommel and the others participating in the battle are also on display. Continue to visit the burial site visiting a small peninsula overlooking the sea, the citadel-like Cemeteries is the final resting place for Commonwealth, Greek, Italian and German soldiers. After enjoying the historical feeling we drive to a small rest area by the sea where we can enjoy the lunch box offered from the ship before our drive back to the harbor in Alexandria.
