Private Alexandria Highlights Guided Day Tour
From $82.00
See the best of Alexandria on a full-day, private tour with an experienced guide. Get the perfect overview and orientation of the city as you trace an all-star route from the stunning modern library to ancient wonders and Roman landmarks. Step into the dramatic history of Egypt’s second largest city, which has seen thousands of years of conquerors and conquests from around the Mediterranean.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Alexandria hotel, and start the day at the New Library, a stunning modernist structure that celebrates the Alexandria library that was destroyed in ancient times. Continue to the site of the lighthouse that was once a wonder of the ancient world, then visit King Farouk’s palace, where the Montazah Gardens and elegant grounds look out towards the Mediterranean Sea. Hear dramatic stories from Egypt’s wartime history, when the king fled the city as overseas troops arrived.
Take a break for lunch in a restaurant with perfect sea views, then spend the afternoon exploring the city’s best ancient sites. Relive Roman imperial triumphs at Pompey’s Pillar, discover the remains of Alexandria’s ancient library, visit the Roman amphitheater, and explore an open air museum to see artifacts from archeological digs. Go underground in the 3rd-century catacombs that combine Greek, Roman and Egyptian art, and take in some of the city’s modern monuments and elegant corniche before returning to your hotel.
