Full day tour in Alexandria city from Alexandria Port to visit the Roman Theater, Alexandria Library, Montaza Palace and Gardens, Quite Bay fortress, the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, Pompeii’s Pillar.

Tour itinerary:

Take a fascinating private tour to Alexandria from Port in the company of your own Egyptologist guide. The second largest city in Egypt, Alexandria has an atmosphere that is more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern and is famous for its Roman remains. With your own private Egyptologist guide to lead the way, you’ll enjoy personalized attention on your private tour of Alexandria. As this is a private tour, you can determine the amount of time you’d like to spend at each of the sites you’ll visit. Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C., and was the capital of Greco-Roman Egypt. Your first stop in this historic city is the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, a Roman burial site whose family tomb reveals the merging of Egyptian and Roman art and architecture. Descend below ground to visit the tomb and Caracals Hall. Back above ground.
Continuing the Roman theme, the next site your guide will show you is the Roman amphitheater, possibly the best preserved Roman site in Egypt. The site also includes the remains of a Roman street and homes. After lunch (additional cost) you will have an outside view of the fort of Qaitbay built in 1477 on the same spot of the great lighthouse of Alexandria.Then,visit the famous Alexandria Library. In contrast to the ancient architecture found throughout Egypt, the Norwegian-designed building is a striking piece of modern design. A copy of every book published in the world is kept in the library, making it one of the great literary sites in the world. The library also houses several exhibitions relating to the history of Egypt and a display of rare antique books (additional cost). Walking and relaxing tour around the Montaza Palace and its Green Gardens. Finally, you will transferred back to your cruise in Alexandria Port.

  1. Last summer, our cruise ship docked in Alexandria port.I had a day tour that included the ancient city remains such as the Roman Amphitheater, Pompey’s Pillar and the catacombs to name a few. I had Mamdouh as my guide and a skilled driver for the 3 hour drive to this Mediterranean city. Mamdouh was well spoken, helpful and incredibly informative. He explained everything I saw and gave me time to wonder on my own and soak up the history of these places. I need to mention something about safety since everyone wonders if it is safe to travel to Egypt nowadays. I had no issues in that regard. I was there the week before their presidential elections and did not see any disturbances or whatsoever. I felt safer than in many cities I have travelled to.
    Again, I recommend using Your Egypt Tours for your day tours; you won’t be disappointed
