Lying northwest of the Nile Delta, Alexandria is the largest port in the Arab republic of Egypt and one of the major summer resorts on the Mediterranean Sea. Founded by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C., Alexandria is the shining pearl of the Mediterranean. Immortalizing Alexander’s name, the city flourished beyond all expectations into a prominent cultural, intellectual and economic metropolis. It was the renowned capital of the Ptolemies and the setting of the thrilling drama involving Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, Mark Anthony and Octavius.

Begin with a drive through the colorful streets of Alexandria. View the unique architecture and experience the charming nostalgia of yesteryear. In Mansheya Square, see the bronze statue of Mohamed Ali, founder of modern Egypt. Just a few steps away is the marble edifice dedicated to the Unknown Soldier with guards of honor at attention on either side. Visit the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqfa, an extensive three level funerary complex dating from the second century A.D.

Afterwards, stop for photos at the Qait Bey Fort built on the original site of the Pharos Lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Continue to the nearby Mosque of Abu El Abbas, one of Alexandria’s Islamic landmarks. Next, proceed to the National Museum housing underwater photographs and statues from the ongoing operation to salvage artifacts from the sunken palace of Cleopatra. Continuing to the Roman Amphitheater in Kom El Dekka. The twelve marble terraces forming a semicircle is considered the only one of its kind in Egypt. A scenic drive along the beachfront boulevard will take you to the Montaza Gardens where the summer palace of King Farouk is located. Stroll through the palm covered grounds and view the palace, still used today for official state functions. On the return trip to the vessel, a photo stop will be made at the impressive Library of Alexandria, followed by a visit to a Papyrus Institute where the procedure of manufacturing the oldest paper in the world, an art discovered by the Ancient Egyptians, will be demonstrated for you .

Note: Access to the Catacombs of Shawqafa is through a spiral staircase around an open central well with approximately 100 wide steps. Due to the musty and humid conditions in the catacombs, guests suffering from asthma and/or claustrophobia may experience discomfort on this tour and should take this into consideration. There are about 15 marble stairs at the museum. Cameras and videos are not allowed at the catacombs. Due to the nature of this tour, guests with wheelchairs and walkers are not recommended. Tour sequence may be altered to avoid congestion but always covering the mentioned sites.
