Some of the most exciting private tours in Egypt are the ones that take you to Alexandria. Without a doubt, this city has a special vibe to it that other places in Egypt don’t seem to share. Maybe because it sits on the Mediterranean coast and is surround by the delta of Nile River. Or maybe because it was under heavy cultural influence of Greeks and then the Romans, which can be clearly seen in the oldest buildings and structures scattered around the city. Any person visiting this place will tell you that Alexandria feels more like an old Mediterranean settlement rather than an ordinary Egyptian city surrounded by ancient temples.
Our tour of the city will include the most remarkable sites that tell stories of different ages. We’ll stop by the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which was built near the site where the old Library used to stand two thousand years ago. We’ll see another remarkable ancient site, the place where the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria used to stand and learn about its tragic history that lead to its collapse almost ten centuries ago. Don’t forget about the Old Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa as they render a fascinating view on the cultural blend between Egypt and Greco-Romans. And, of course, we’ll admire the monumental Pompey’s Pillar, which is the largest monolith triumph column in the world.
Culture and architecture are not the only attractions in Alexandria. Don’t forget to enjoy lunch in one of the numerous local restaurants – you’ll be surely surprised by the local cuisine abundant with fresh seafood and other typical Mediterranean influences. Indulge yourself in the relaxed atmosphere of this wonderful city that you’ll certainly want to visit once more after our tour is over.
