Tour Itinerary
07:00 pickup from your hotel lobby in Cairo or Giza. Drive 2.5 hours to Alexandria at the Mediterranean Sea, to the second largest city of Egypt. The city was founded by Alexander the Great. Visit to the Fortress of Qaitbay, built in the fifteenth century by Sultan Qaitbay on the ancient Alexandrian style. Continue visiting the impressive Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, an enormous complex of underground burial chambers, built by the Romans in the second century A.D. Your next stop will be Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the new library of Alexandria, opened in October 2002. Its aim is to revive the legendary spirit of the ancient library built by the Greeks in around 300 BC and destroyed by an earthquake in 415 C.E, and to restore Alexandria to its former status as a center for learning and scholarship. Visit to the Pompey’s Pillar, actually a pink granite column with an ornamental capital, which was erected in honor of Diocletian in 302 AD. It marks the ancient site of the Serapeum, built by the Ptolemaic. Return transfer to your hotel in Cairo.
