Cleopatra's Palace (10/14)

Cleopatra's Palace

There may be only scant remnants of the once grand Hellenistic city above ground, but dive into the waters of Alexandria’s Eastern Harbour area, and you’ll find there’s plenty more of ancient “Alex” to explore. Archaeologists have been plumbing the depths for years, searching for the lost sunken city of the Classical age and bringing up many treasures to the surface (now on display in Alexandria’s museums), but recreational divers can now visit the archaeological ruins under the sea, too. 

The most popular site has been (unsurprisingly) nicknamed “Cleopatra’s Palace” and indeed was once a palace area — though if the great lady herself was ever in residence, we’ll never know. There are sphinxes and tumbled columns and statuary galore still in situ here, which makes for a fascinating underwater experience
