Alexandria 85 Tours & Activities

Private Alexandria Highlights Guided Day Tour

Your Alexandria specialist guide will pick you up from your Alexandria hotel at 9am and drive you in air-conditioned comfort to your first stop, the new library of Alexandria. The ancient library of Alexandria was the largest in the world, and the modernist Bibliotheca Alexandrina is an impressive piece of modern architecture. Next, head to the Citadel of Qaitbay, the Ottoman-era fortress built on the site of the ancient Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the original Seven Wonders of the World. Then you'll visit the Montazah Palace, home to the last king of Egypt, King Farouk, before breaking for an included lunch at a restaurant with Mediterranean sea views.

After lunch, visit Pompey's Pillar, the Roman Amphitheater, and the Alexandria National Museum, home to a fascinating collection of artefacts, some salvaged from the waters of the harbor. Explore the eerie, 3rd-century catacombs, whose architecture is a fascinating mix of Greek, Roman, and ancient Egyptian styles. Next, enjoy a whirlwind tour of monuments including the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the statue of Alexander the Great, before a drive along the waterfront Corniche and across the Stanley Bridge. You'll head back to your hotel around 4pm.
