Half day Alexandria tour

In the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Alexandria. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. This library that was the successor to the great ancient library of Alexandria came to life through a unique cooperation between Egypt, UNESCO and the Norwegian architect firm Snøhetta. A guided tour with good extra time gave the ability to see and feel this grand library and monument. Following visit the fort and Citadel of Qaitbay (from outside only; without sightseeing Tickets), which was built around 1480 y the Mamluk Sultan Qaitbay. It is believed to rest on the site and to be built from the stones of the Pharos lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Near by is a small navel museum, which was mostly devoted to Nelson's defeat of Napoleon's fleet right off the coast of Alexandria on August 1-2, 1798. Next visit Abu El-Abbas Mosque; this beautiful mosque, with its high minaret and four domes, is Alexandria's largest and one of the most important Islamic monuments. In 1775 the Algerians built the mosque over the tomb of the thirteenth century Andalusan saint Ahmed Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi who had joined and then lead the Shadhali brotherhood. The interior is made up of eight monolithic granite columns and a colonnade of elongated arches. It was rebuilt in 1943 with the domes and the towering (73 meter) minaret. It is one of Alexandria's foremost religious buildings and women are not allowed inside the mosque proper, but may only visit a room at the back of the mosque. At the end of the day return to hotel in Alexandria.
