Alexandria, Egypt

FROM $1,149 PER PERSON | 4 DAYS | $287 PER DAY

Follow in the footsteps of Alexander the Great — and later, Mark Antony and Cleopatra — with a visit to the great port city he founded in 331 BCE. Known as the "Pearl of the Mediterranean," Alexandria’s coastal climate and cultural flavor set it apart from the Egyptian destinations you’ve visited so far. Thanks to its storied past, Alexandria boasts a wealth of cultural and historic sites, many of which you’ll tour during your stay.

Explore the city’s rich past as a center of learning at the celebrated Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Discover the mysterious underground world of its ancient Greco-Roman catacombs. Confront more recent history at the solemn El Alamein War Cemetery. You’ll also enjoy visits to the Alexandria National Museum, Roman Amphitheatre, and Pompey’s Pillar.

Your Price Includes:
  • 3 nights accommodations: 2 nights at the Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria (or similar), and 1 night at the Renaissance Cairo Mirage City Hotel (or similar)
  • 10 included tours, listed below
  • 6 meals: 3 breakfasts & 3 lunches
  • All transfers between your base tour and your extension, as well as baggage handling (where permitted) and internal transfers

Alexandria’s ancient architectural marvels

This morning, embark on a panoramic city tour of Alexandrai’s highlights before visiting the ancient Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, an extensive underground burial site from the Greco-Roman era that’s considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages. According to legend, the great archaeological site was discovered in 1900 when a donkey working the farmland above fell into one of the shafts. You’ll also visit Alexandria’s tallest monument — Pompey’s Pillar. Constructed from a single block of red granite from Aswan, this massive Romanesque column is the largest of its kind ever found outside of ancient Roman and Constantinople. Following lunch at a local dining establishment, your tour continues at the Roman Amphitheatre and National Museum. Your evening is at leisure and dinner is on your own.
