As your private guide in Cairo I'm happy to offer you this full-day tour to Alexandria, which includes all the major sites in the city. The pyramids are certainly the most renowned thing people come after to Egypt, but there's so much more to explore than that. And Alexandria is just the place to do it.
I will pick you up from the hotel and we'll drive to Alexandria in a comfortable air-conditioned van that has all the features necessary for a comfortable travel. Once we arrive to the ancient city, our first destination will be the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which is a modern structure that i-was built to commemorate one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Ancient Library of Alexandria. Built about 2,300 years ago and accidentally burned down by Julius Caesar in the year 30 AD, it was the largest known library of its time housing over 8 million manuscripts, books and tablets. But the library was just a part of the Museum of Alexandria, a large university where the greatest ancient thinkers, scientists, philosophers and inventors have studied. I will tell you the dramatic story of this magnificent place and the recent archeological discoveries telling more about its structure.
Our next stop will be at the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa.
This ancient necropolis is classified by many historicists as one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages. This is the place where many noble people were buried and where their relatives came to feast and mourn. What's really fascinating about this complex is the mix of Egyptian, Hellenistic and Roman influences, which is due to the time period of its establishment and growth, when the three civilizations where present in Alexandria.
We then proceed to the Citadel of Qaitbay, which is built on the site and partially from the remains of another ancient wonder, the Lighthouse of Alexandria. This maritime fort is several centuries old and represents a great exhibit of Arab architecture. then we return back to Cairo.
