Victoria (Egyptian Arabic: فكتوريا‎‎ Fiktoria) is a neighborhood in Alexandria, Egypt, named after Queen Victoria. It serves as a transportation hub for eastern Alexandria, containing the easternmost station of line 1 and 2 of the Alexandria tramways, with bus lines and mashrū` routes operating from near the terminal.

Victoria hosts the prestigious Victoria College, a private, secular secondary school originally styled after British public schools.
