As you drive through the city, you will stop at the villa of Ferdinand de Lesseps, the developer of the Suez Canal. The canal was opened in 1869 and considered the greatest project of the 19th century.
Your crossing by car ferryboat will take you from Africa to Asia, stopping in the memorial place of the second army so you can enjoy the narrowest and the widest points of the canal. Here you can see a third expedition crossing the canal from north to south. Port Said's twin city is Port Fuad, which lies on the eastern bank of the canal. The two cities coexist, to the extent that there hardly is any town centre in Port Fuad. Ferries here are just like using public transportaion elsewhere. Your guide will explain, using maps, the historical route of the exodus after your sail.
From here we will head to one of the military immune lines built within the War of Attrition by the Israelites. This was captured by the Egyptian army in 1973. Crossing back to Africa by ferry boat will allow you time for a lovely lunch at a famous local seafood restaurant.
