Visit: Cairo Citadel, Al Abageyah Shar'a Salih Salem, Cairo 11511 Egypt

Alexandria has so much to see, eat and buy – fit in as much of it as possible on this day tour from Cairo. you will Start your day trip to Alexandria with pick-up from your accommodation in a comfortable vehicle. The first stop on this full-day tour will be a visit to the Library of Alexandria, the biggest library in the world. Now housing 8 million books, you can visit its open court to see the statues of Alexander the Great and Ptolemy the First .

The car will then transfer you off to the Church of St. Mark, the oldest church in Africa. Then, continue on to the old downtown of Alexandria where you can walk through traditional markets where everything and anything is sold. Admire the downtown’s Baroque designs and Italian- and French-style properties. If you choose, have lunch in a famous restaurant called “Mohamed Ahmed’s” – the Queen of Spain has eaten here! Take a break in a coffee shop or shisha café before continuing on with your tour.

Continue your Alexandria adventure in the afternoon with a packed itinerary of sights. See the city’s oldest market area which contains both the women’s markets and the most spectacular gold market where everyone buys their wedding jewelry. See the prettiest and largest mosque in the city, the Abbo Elabbas Mosque, and the ancient fun-fair located just outside of it where children still play. Opposite is the corniche and old harbour where you can see fishing boats and traditional fishers making nets. From here, walk 5 minutes to see the Quaitbay castle. See Memorial of the Unknown Soldier, and the beautiful coastline on the way to the Montaza Palace and Gardens (also known as the Love Garden for its popularity with couples!). All of these will make for excellent photo opportunities, so don’t forget your camera. Finally, cross over the modern Bridge of Stanley before travelling back to your hotel.
