Culture and History tour in Alexandria
Tour Price : $220 Duration : 12 hours Languages: english and arabic
Incepted by Alexander the Great himself over 2,300 years ago, Alexandria is a large city of modern Egypt these days. It’s second only to Cairo, and features a unique atmosphere that makes it a bit different from all other places in the country. Due to the pronounced influences of the Greco-Roman culture, which was present in the city for centuries, Alexandria looks more like typical Mediterranean city rather than an Egyptian settlement. No wonder it is one of the most popular sea resorts in the country for both domestic and foreign tourists. But the sea is not the only attraction here, since the city boasts a rich culture and many fascinating historical sites.
First of all, Alexandria is famous for being the place where the ancient Wonder of the World was standing. Towering over 130m, the Pharos Lighthouse (Lighthouse of Alexandria) was the largest structure of its kind, and recent researches have located the remnants of this unique building under the sea near Alexandria. Another ancient wonder that was also located in the city is the enormous Library of Alexandria, which was burnt down by Julius Caesar. Today there’s the new version of the largest ancient institution, known by the name Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which can be visited during the tour.
Besides these ancient sites, there are many other places that we’ll visit during our tour, such as the Roman Theater, Montaza Palace, Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, Pompey’s Pillar and many others. As your Egypt private guide I will gladly take you through these ancient and modern wonders of Alexandria and bring you all the facts that are necessary to know about these places. If you love history, and want to see how different cultural influence can mix up in a unique way, there’s no better opportunity to do it than explore the beautiful city of Alexandria.
