An inspiring visit to Egypt's second city, Alexandria. This seaside town could not feel more different than its southern neighbor. This tour takes you underground and back in time at the Roman Catacombs and visits the new Alexandria Library while taking in the sea air and the wonderful vistas of the corniche.

Get ready for an inspiring day in one of Egypt's most impressive historical cities, Alexandria. After an approximately three-hour drive, our day tour of Alexandria begins at the Catacombs of Kom Ash-Suqqafa. One of the world's largest Roman burial sites, the Catacombs is one of Alexandria's most popular attractions. Descend into a network of underground passages, tombs, and antechambers via a spiral staircase over a three-level labyrinth. Dozens of chambers with sculpted pillars and statues await your curiosity, as well as a large Roman-style banquet room, where relatives of the deceased traditionally hosted memorial meals.

Head to the former site of the Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the seven ancient wonders of the world. Although the lighthouse is no longer standing, atop its ruins lies the Citadel of Qaitbay, a defensive fortress built in the 15th Century. Designed as a defense along the Mediterranean coastline, the Citadel offers extensive views, fresh Mediterranean air, and a supreme sense of historical significance.

Our Alexandria day tour continues with a visit to the Alexandria Library. Inspired by the original great library of Alexandria, the modern library was built to hold over eight million books. Built between 1995 and 2002, it covers 11 cascading levels and, although it has not yet reached its capacity, it is still an impressive homage to the ancient splendor of Alexandria.

Our final stop in Alexandria is the National Museum, home to Greek and Roman era masterpiece ruins discovered under the water on the shores of Alexandria. As one of Egypt's most historically significant cities, our day tour of Alexandria will leave you with an enriching experience like no other.
