Detailed Itinerary

Full-day Tour to Alexandria From Cairo

Getaways Egypt Tour manager will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo; Then, we head for the ancient port city of Alexandria, where you'll ramp up the adventure with a full-day tour of extraordinary ruins and relics from Greco-Roman times. Built-in 331 BC by Alexander the Great and set on a gorgeous Mediterranean harbor, the city is an archaeological treasure trove. Start with the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, which is a vast complex of rock-cut tombs used for almost 200 years starting in the second century. With ornamented columns, labyrinthine passages, funeral halls, and relief carvings in a variety of styles, the Catacombs are a vivid illustration of Alexandria's unique style of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman traditions. Then discover Pompey's Pillar erected to honor the Roman Emperor Diocletian. Alexandrina Bibliotheca stands as a marvel of the modern world. Gaze out over its granite facade, carved with letters and hieroglyphs representing more than 120 different scripts.
