Posted November 24, 2022 by PeterMamdouh1

A 10-hour guided day trip from Cairo to Alexandria. Tour the Greco-Roman city, which has an atmosphere and architecture of a Mediterranean city.

Take a fascinating tour to Alexandria from Cairo in the company of Your Egypt Tours Egyptologist guide. The second-largest city in Egypt, Alexandria has an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean and cosmopolitan than other Egyptian cities. It is famous for its Roman remains. With your Egyptologist guide leading the way, you'll enjoy personalized attention on your tour. During the tour, you can determine the amount of time you'd like to spend at each site you visit. Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C. and was the capital of Graeco-Roman Egypt. Your first stop in this historic city is the catacombs of Kom El-Shuqqafa, a Roman burial site whose family tomb reveals the merging of Egyptian and Roman art and architecture. Descend below ground to visit the tomb and Caracalla Hall. The next site your guide will show you above ground is the fort of Qaitbay, built-in 1477, to protect the city's eastern side. The fort was built in the same location as the great lighthouse of Alexandria. After lunch (at additional cost), you will visit the famous Alexandria Library. In contrast to the ancient architecture found throughout Egypt, the Norwegian-designed building is a striking piece of modern design. A copy of every book published worldwide is kept in the library, making it one of the great literary sites in the world. The library also houses several exhibitions relating to the history of Egypt and a display of rare antique books (at additional cost).
