This full day tour from Cairo visits the coastal city of Alexandria to explore its colonial past, Roman ruins, and modern day attractions. Located around 2 1/2 hours drive north from Cairo, Alexandria is very popular with Egyptians during the summer months and has a lot to attract tourists all year round.

Alexandria sits on the Mediterranean coast and is the second largest city in Egypt. This full day guided tour from Cairo includes the Roman amphitheatre with its twelve semi-circular marble tiers, the Catacombs of Kom al-Shoqafa which is the largest Roman cemetery in Alexandria, Pompey's Pillar, Fort Qaitbey (from outside) which sits on the site of the ancient lighthouse, and the famous modern library before returning to Cairo. If time allows you can tour inside Fort Qaitbey (entrance fee extra) and we may also visit the Montazah Palace gardens. Lunch at a seafood restaurant is included. Finally we return to Cairo to drop you back at your hotel or airport.
