"El Alamein seen of the famous..." Egypt Off The Beaten Path Tip by pasha

Egypt Off The Beaten Path: 250 reviews and 315 photos

El Alamein seen of the famous WW2 battle between Rommel and Montgomery. Some consider it the turning point of the war. Churchill said 'before El Alamein we never won a battle after El Alamein we never lost one'.
Between Alexadria and Masra Matrouh. The bus from either to the other can drop you off. Service taxis also run that route regularly so stand on the road and flag one down to return.
Make sure to visit the museum to get an idea of what went on there. Well worth it.
