    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your Alexandria hotel, and start the day at the New Library, a stunning modernist structure that celebrates the Alexandria library that was destroyed in ancient times. Continue to the site of the lighthouse that was once a wonder of the ancient world, then visit King Farouk’s palace, where the Montazah Gardens and elegant grounds look out towards the Mediterranean Sea. Hear dramatic stories from Egypt’s wartime history, when the king fled the city as overseas troops arrived.

    Take a break for lunch in a restaurant with perfect sea views, then spend the afternoon exploring the city’s best ancient sites. Relive Roman imperial triumphs at Pompey’s Pillar, discover the remains of Alexandria’s ancient library, visit the Roman amphitheater, and explore an open air museum to see artifacts from archeological digs. Go underground in the 3rd-century catacombs that combine Greek, Roman and Egyptian art, and take in some of the city’s modern monuments and elegant corniche before returning to your hotel.

    You will see a lot of things on this tour. Our guide Esraa was amazing, she was very knowledgable, and the driver was excellent given the headache-inducing driving style in Egypt. I highly recommend this!
