"Train Cairo to Alexandria" Egypt Transportation Tip by graeme83

Egypt Transportation: 358 reviews and 302 photos

Between Alexandria and Cairo I can recommend the train. There is approx one every hour during the day. The journey time ranges between 2-3 hours depending on the service and number of stops. The carraiges on this route are well kept and the seats comfortable. I got my tickets a few minutes before each journey without any problems. However, if you need to book a particular time it is always best to buy in advance. The approx cost of the train in 2nd class is E30. The train leaves from Ramses Station and stops at both the main train stations in Alexandria.
