Founded by Alexander the Great in 332 BC, Alexandria was the capital of Greco-Roman Egypt for almost 1000 years.

With its legendary lighthouse and great Library the city was renowned as a centre for culture and learning. Today the ancient library is replaced by a modern wonder, the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Carved into the exterior of the Bibliotheca are hieroglyphs, symbols and letters from ancient scripts. The eerie Catacombs of Kom El Shouqafa are the largest-known Roman burial site in Egypt. Modern Alexandria reflects much of its 19th century cosmopolitan heritage, and although just 220 kilometres from Cairo, seems more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern.

  • Full day tour of Alexandria including
  • Pomepy’s Pillar
  • Catacombs of Kom El Shouqafa
  • Montazah Palace and Gardens
  • National Museum
  • Full day Alamein tour with lunch
