We also got to see the Bibliotheca Alexandrina and the Old Alexandria Lighthouse site/Citadel of Qaitbay. We drove by the Taposiris Magna Temple multiple times but never got to stop there. They believe that's where Queen Cleopatra's tomb is, but they aren't certain.
Very cool. Have you watched Lost Treasures of Egypt? Its been very cool and informative. They found some new evidence about Tut's tomb...basically where he was found was NOT supposed to be his tomb. His successor basically rushed him to that one and took what was to be Tut's tomb for himself. I have not finished the series of shows but some very facinating stuff! I have been into Egyptology & ancient Greek & Roman history since I was a kid. Tho I don't know as much about those as Egypt
