Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Alexandria and Cairo (Meals: D)
From the Alexandria port you’ll travel with your guide to the Roman Theater, which is located in the modern area of Alexandria known as Kom El-Dikaa. From this point in the city center the tour continues on to the Catacombs, or underground tunnels, in the district of Karmouz, situated to the east of Alexandria. The Catacombs date back to the 1st century A.D. and were used as a cemetery until the 4th century A.D. In 1900 the site were discovered by chance when a donkey and cart fell into a pit.

The tour continues with a visit to the New Library of Alexandria. The city’s old library was at one time the largest and most significant library of the ancient world. It flourished during the Ptolemaic dynasty and functioned as a major center of scholarship from the 3rd century B.C. until Egypt was conquered by the Romans in 30 B.C.

Your last stop in Alexandria will be to visit the Montazah Palace and Gardens before driving to Cairo, where you’ll have dinner and spend the night at your hotel.

Day 2: Cairo and Port Said (Meals: B)
After breakfast you’ll check out of your hotel and drive to Giza to visit the Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinus. You’ll also see the Great Sphinx and the Valley Temple of Chefren. You’ll then travel with your guide to Cairo’s Coptic Quarter, where you’ll see the Hanging church and the Ben Ezra Synagogue as well.

The Egyptian Museum is next on the itinerary, and is home to the world’s largest collection of Pharaonic artifacts. On display are collections of more than 5,000 years of art and over 250,000 artifacts, including an exhibit dedicated to the treasures of Tutankhamen discovered when his tomb was excavated in the 1920s. You’ll then visit the famous El Khalili Bazaar, where you may want to do some shopping before the drive to Port Said.
