Excursion Details

The beautiful Alexandria is located 220km north of Cairo and is the second-largest city in Egypt, it is a place full of history and is commonly referred to as “the Pearl of the Mediterranean”. In Alexandria tour, you will visit the Quaitbay Castle, an XV century fortress located in the port and that formerly housed the famous lighthouse of Alexandria, whose ruins are still preserved. You will also have the opportunity to see in the wonderful tour the catacombs of Kom el Shogafa, an important archaeological site dating back to the first century. It consists of three underground levels that have given shelter to more than 300 mummies, the most common funerary divinities, and various Greco-Roman carvings. This site is considered one of the “Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages”.

After having lunch in a seafood restaurant to taste the most typical products of the Alexandrian cuisine, you will continue your tour to the temple ruins of the Serapeum, in which Pompey’s Pillar still survives. Several historians agree that this important Roman General was buried in this place after losing his life in battle. However, this site is more significant for the Serapeum, which was a symbol of ancient traditions and stood against the increasing popularity of Christianity in the early ages AD. The tour ends in the Royal Gardens of Montazah, an imposing palace located on the top of a hill offering spectacular views of Alexandria's the Mediterranean Sea.
