Meet your guide at your Cairo hotel for an early morning departure to Alexandria with your group of up to 14 people. Enjoy views of the Egyptian countryside on the 2.5-hour trip to the Mediterranean Sea, where you’ll find a city that overflows with old world cafes, European-style parks and historic sites.
Learn about the now-ruined Alexandria Lighthouse, once a Wonder of the Ancient World, which lies on the ocean floor beneath the 15th-century Qaitbay Citadel. Hear what’s known about the dramatic destruction of the ancient Alexandria Library, and about the ultra-modern structure that’s replaced it.
Visit the gardens surrounding the Montazah Palace, where 19th-century khedives escaped the Cairo heat; tour the Roman theater excavations that have revealed mosaic floors and marble seating for 800 people. Pause for a fresh lunch at the edge of the sea, then go beneath the city streets to see the Catacombs, whose Egyptian, Hellenistic and Roman influences make their art and imagery truly unique. Finish the day with return transfer to your Cairo hotel.
