Alexandria day trip from Cairo when you meet your guide in the hotel in cairo or Giza.

Travel in air-conditioned comfort aboard a luxury coach as you make your way to Egypt’s second largest city. Founded by Alexander the Great in 312 BC, the city’s coastal views and easy access to the Mediterranean Ocean make it a destination for travelers to this diverse nation. Follow your guide into the dark Catacombs of Kom ash-Shuqqafa and venture into the three levels of tunnels that make up the world’s largest Roman burial site. Learn about the chambers, sculptures and frescos and experience the spooky triclinium, where family held giant feasts to honor the fallen. Next, your guide will take you to the former site of the Lighthouse of Alexandria, which was once recognized as one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Though the structure no longer exists, you’ll learn about its mythical past and get an up close look at the 15th century citadel known as Fort Qaitbey, which was built on these hallowed grounds. After a local lunch your guide will take you on a tour of the Alexandria Library. Its disc-like shape is unusual for the area and is home to more than eight million books. Finally, no trip to this fine city is complete without a stop at the Alexandria National Museum. Wind through the halls filled with Greek and Roman artifacts and gain a deeper understanding of how these European lands influenced the development of Egypt. At the close of the tour your air-conditioned coach will transport you back to Cairo and return you to your original center-city starting point
