At 7:00am, you'll meet with your tour guide in the lobby of your hotel. You'll be picked up by one of our private A/C vans where you'll begin your journey to the great city of Alexandria. Alexandria is located 210 kilometers North of Cairo and will take approximately two and a half hours to reach our first sightseeing stop.

The Catacombs

Our first stop is to the Catacombs. Here you'll see a mixture of Greek, Roman, and Ancient Egyptian art. The catacombs consist of three floors. You'll visit the main tomb which still has the carvings, statues, and symbols of the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians.  

The Seraphim Temple  

Your next stop is to the Third Century Pompey's Pillar. The pillar is 25 meters high made from red Swan granite and is considered to be one of the last remaining relics of the Seraphim Temple. 

Constructed in honor of the Emperor Diocletian, it was once a magnificent structure rivaling the Soma and the Cesarean.

Quitbay Citadel 

Our next stop takes us to the Quitbay Citadel. After the 11th Century Earthquake, the lighthouse of Alexandria was gone. Instead of rebuilding the lighthouse, the Sultan Qaitbay built the Alexandrian Fortress to protect Egypt's North.

During your tour in Qaitbay Citadel, your tour guide will tell you more about the military monuments and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.

Lunch &  Alexandria Library 

Before heading back to Cairo, you'll have a lovely lunch in one of our local restaurants. Before you leave, you do have the option to visit the new and impressive Library of Alexandria. 

Please note, the library entrance fee is not included in the price of this tour, however, should you wish to visit your tour guide will be more than happy to help you purchase your tickets.
