Take a fascinating tour to Alexandria from Cairo in the company of youregypttours.com 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 Egyptologist guide to lead the way,you'll enjoy personalized attention on your tour of Alexandria. During the 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 Graeco-Roman Egypt. Your first stop in this historic city is the catacombs of Kom ash-Shuqqafa, 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 Caracalla Hall. Back above ground, continue to Pompey's Pillar, an 82-feet (25-meter) granite column built to honor Emperor Diocletian, who freed the besieged city and brought food to its starving people. Continuing the Roman theme, the next site your guide will show you is the fort of Qaitbay,built in 1477 to protect the eastern side of the city.the fort was built on the same location of the great lighthouse of Alexandria.After lunch (additional cost) you will 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.
