What to Expect
Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt, and often referred to as "The Pearl of the Mediterranean." It boasts an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern, and on this full-day tour with an expert Egyptologist guide you will explore the city that was founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC.

You will be picked up from your Cairo hotel at 07:30 for the 3-hour drive to the Mediterranean Sea through the desert landscape. Relax as you cruise into one of the most historic cities in the world.

Explore the Greco Roman Museum, which contains artifacts that will give you a comprehensive picture of the grandeur of Alexandria in its Greek and Roman days. Stop at the newly built Library of Alexandria, one of architecture’s greatest modern marvels and said to have shelf space for more than 8 million books.

You will visit the Catacombs of Kom El Shuqafa, where the tombs are markedly Romanesque, and continue to the Fort of Quaitbay to see the 15th-Century citadel and the recently excavated Roman Amphitheater.

Drive down lovely Belle Epoque streets and cruise along the famous Corniche to see the vibrant beaches and the bustling harbor, lined with ships.

You will return to Cairo in the late afternoon for the end of your 12-hour excursion, with a drop-off at your hotel or any other location of your choice in the city center.
