Trip Info

Spend the day exploring this ancient seaside city, including Pompey’s Pillar, the catacombs, and the new Alexandria Library.

We have plenty of time to explore all the incredible sites this ancient city has to offer. Founded by Alexander the Great around 331 BC, Egypt’s only Mediterranean city is characterized by a distinctly European atmosphere and a refreshing sea breeze. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy an optional seafood lunch at one of the city’s many outdoor seaside restaurants at noon.

Enjoy a visit to Fort Qaitbay, once considered one of the most important defensive strongholds along the Mediterranean Sea coast. It was an important part of the fortification system of Alexandria in the 15th century AD.

Located at the entrance of the eastern harbour on the eastern point of Pharos Island, it was erected on the exact site of the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. In the 14th century there was a destructive earthquake and the whole building was completely destroyed; the fortification you see today was built in its place.
