Be careful for many locals will attempt to rip you off. Use Uber or Careem - cheap and safe. Females dress modestly else may face harassment especially late evenings. Alexandria to Cairo use train - 1st class air conditioned carriage is 70 - 104 EGP.

I have been many times and although it is not the same as it used to be - many old buildings are being demolished - it is always nice.
