Start with an early pickup at your hotel in Cairo, then begin the roughly 3-hour trip to Alexandria in an air-conditioned coach. Upon arrival in Alexandria, you’ll make the first stop of the day at the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, which date to the 2nd century AD. Follow your guide into the network of underground rooms to see art that combines Egyptian and Greco-Roman styles, with bright frescoes preserved through the centuries.

Continue to Pompey’s Pillar, a triumphal landmark carved from a solid piece of red Aswan granite, and learn the story of the ancient battle that inspired its construction. Head to the edge of the Mediterranean Sea for views to the Citadel of Qaitbay, a 15th-century fortress that stands on the site of the former Alexandria Lighthouse, once a wonder of the ancient world. Visit the Montazah Palace where the last Khedive of Sudan and Egypt lived surrounded by elaborate gardens and traditional architecture.

Pause for lunch at a seafood restaurant with views of the sea, then head to the modern Library at Alexandria, where a massive collection of books recalls Alexandria’s ancient library, once among the largest in the world. In the afternoon, you’ll have free time to explore the city on foot before returning to Cairo, where this full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
