I just watched a video that talked about how Alexandria was one of the ancient world's greatest cities. Just out of curiosity, I wanted to see where it was on the map, but I already had a pretty good idea.
So I dropped into Google Street View and looked around. From Google Street View, If you look down then you will see a hand positioned above the car. Apparently, this person drove around the city a couple of times holding an omnidirectional camera above his car.
