Your tour guide and driver will pick you up from Alexandria Port ( by the cruise exit door) for a wonderful day tour of Alexandria to visit Pompay's Pillar. It was constructed in honor of the Emperor Diocletian at the end of the 4th century. Originally from the temple of the Serapis, it was once a magnificent structure rivaling the Soma and the Caesarean. Then you drive to visit the Catacombs which are the largest Roman Cemetery consisting of three levels cut in the rock. Lunch at local restaurant in Alexandria, and then we proceed to see the Qaitbay Citadel which was built on the site of the ancient pharaohs (lighthouse) of Alexandria then to Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Finally you will transferred back to your cruise ship at Alexandria Port.
While we were in Cairo & Alexandria, protests were going on but had no impact on our tours and our visit overall. A great city to visit!
