At your first stop, admire the famous library of Alexandria, one of the largest and most impressive examples of ancient times. Next, visit the site of Pharos lighthouse of Alexandria, which was once an Ancient Wonder of the world, before breaking for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, visit the Montazah Palace Gardens, where you can marvel at the presidential palaces of Salamlek, Al-Haramlik, and their adjacent beaches. Later, stop for some photos at Alexandria’s most charming mosque and at the memorial statue of Alexander the Great. Next, pay a visit to the oldest church in Africa; the Church of St Mark. Finish your tour in Downtown Alexandria, passing through the old harbor along the way. At the end of the day, get dropped off at a 4* hotel where you will spend the night.
