Overall Guide : The town has beautiful old houses with grand balconies, giving the city a distinctive look. The main street here is the Sharia Palestine, you’ll find the markets, museums and eateries lined up here. The National Museum houses relics from the... more city’s past; popular exhibits include relics and artefacts from the prehistoric era, ancient Egypt as well as Islamic and Coptic times. The Military Museum has wartime displays from the Pharaonic and Islamic wars, as well as from the Suez Crises and the 1967 and 1973 wars. Visit the Port Said Old light tower; it was build in 1868 and is quite a local landmark. Also visit the Port Said Maritime Dockyard for some fascinating insights on ship building at the floating repair yard and ship-making yards. Across the Canal from Port Said is Port Fuad; a residential complex, it is a pleasant place to take a stroll among the gardens and sprawling residences located there.
