Spend the day exploring this ancient seaside city, including Pompey’s Pillar, the catacombs, and the new Alexandria Library. In the afternoon opt to explore the city further on a guided tour, or see the sights at your own pace. It’s up to you!
We have plenty of time to explore all the incredible sites this ancient city has to offer. Founded by Alexander the Great around 331BC, Egypt’s only Mediterranean city is characterized by a distinctly European atmosphere and a refreshing sea breeze. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy an optional seafood dinner at one of the city’s many outdoor seaside restaurants this evening.
