Alexandria is the second-largest Egyptian city in terms of population density and economic importance. It was built by Alexander the Great more than two thousand years ago, making it full of Egyptian and Greek antiquities alike.
A well-planned trip to Alexandria from Cairo will make you able to explore its many treasures such as the Roman theater, the pillared column, the tombs of Kom el Shoqafa, the Qaitbay Citadel, the Mursi Abul Abbas Mosque, and the library, all in one day.


After breakfast at your hotel in Cairo, pick you up and start our trip to Alexandria (2 to 3 hours). Arrive at Alexandria to explore:
The Roman Amphitheater:
a medium-sized ancient Roman theater surrounded by ancient Roman houses and Gymnasium.
Pompey’s Pillar:
The largest among all Alexandria attractions, the Pillar site contains many other artifacts, as well as a Serapium (God Serapis graveyard).
The Catacombs of Kom El-Shukafa:
Three stories of graves under the ground divided into shelves and enough to accommodate 2000 mummies! The tombs were found empty in 1900.
The Qaitbay Citadel:
This fort was built to defend the city against the attacks of the crusaders who came from the sea. It was built on the site of the ancient lighthouse.
Abul Abbas Mosque:
This Imam was managing the fishermen and leading them into prayer. The beautiful mosque is named after him.

One of the largest libraries in the world. A guided tour is featured on this trip.
