Full Day Alexandria From The Port

In the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from Alexandria Port. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Montazah Summer Palace, walk around and enjoy the Montazah gardens. Originally built in 1892, it was the summer home of the Egyptian Royal family. 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 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. Next is a visit to the Bombay's Pillar which was built in 297 AD for the Roman Emperor Diocletian. The Pillar itself is a 9 meters / 29 feet in circumference and it is said that 22 people could lunch on the capital, or flat top of the Pillar. In the end it was time to visit the Catacomb of Komel-Shokafa. These tombs were tunneled into the bedrock in the age of the Antonine emperors (2nd century A.D.) for a single wealthy family still practicing the ancient religion. These tombs represent the last existing major construction for the sake of the old Egyptian religion. At the end of the day return to your cruise ship in Alexandria.
