Victoria (Arabic: فكتوريا‎) is a neighborhood in Alexandria, Egypt, named after Queen Victoria.

It contains the easternmost station of Alexandria Tram lines 1 and 2, with bus lines and mashrū` routes operating from nearby the terminal; it is thus accounted a primary transportation hub of eastern Alexandria.

Victoria also plays host to Victoria College, Alexandria, a private, secular secondary school originally in the style of the British public school famous across Egypt.
