The Cavafy Museum is dedicated to the Greek poet Konstantin Cavafy. It offers the visitors a peek into the great poet’s life and times. Cavafy lived at the house for 25 years before he died in 1933.
The museum’s bindery is worth a look where the poet made his own brochures and leaflets. And there is one last curiosity: a cast of Cavafy's death mask, serene but disfigured, lying cushioned on a purple pillow.
- Note that the museum is on a 2nd-floor walk-up and there are no elevators.
- There is a bus stop located at a two minute walk from the museum.
- Athineos Restaurant

Can't see something special on the place but its cozy
It's the home of the great Greek poet Cavafy. It housed many if his possessions. Books, paintings, notes, etc. The place us well maintained by the Greek consulate in Alexandria. Its located in the second floor of an old building, Unfortunately for people who can't climb satires, the guide there is so informative. If in Alexandria and have the time go there.
Nothing extraordinary to see it's a must see for someone from Greece. On the plus the nice tour given by the man at the ticket office.
A unique space for all the readers of Kavafy. You can still feel the decadent ambiance of the old greek quarter.
