Day 2 – Private sightseeing in Alexandria
After breakfast, your personal car, driver and guide will be waiting to take you on a comprehensive privately guided tour of this historic city, beginning with the ancient catacombs. Discovered in 1900, this is the largest known Roman burial site in Egypt. You’ll also see Pompey’s Pillar, an impressive monolithic column that was erected in honor of Emperor Diocletian. From here, your sightseeing continues with the ancient Roman amphitheater and the spectacular Qaitbay Citadel, built in the 15th century on the exact site of the famous Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The Royal Library of Alexandria was one of the greatest libraries of the ancient world and flourished from its construction in the 3rd century BC until its destructions centuries later. Today, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina stands as a marvel of the modern world. Shaped like a giant discus embedded in the ground, its granite facades are carved with letters, pictograms, characters and hieroglyphs from more than 120 different scripts. Inside, its main reading room can hold 8 million books and accommodate 2,500 people under its distinctive sloping roof. Before returning to your hotel, you’ll visit this striking contemporary library as well as Montazah Park with its beautiful landscaped grounds and sweeping views of the sea. (B)
