Tour Itinerary

Pro Tours representative will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo by modern air-conditioned van to drive to Alexandria and start your visit to the major monuments of Alexandria with your private Egyptology tour guide:
Tour to the Catacombs
It is known as Kom El shoqafa, considered one of the Seven Wonders of the middle Ages. The necropolis consists of a series of Alexandrian tombs, statues and archaeological objects of the Pharaohnic funeral cult with Hellenistic and early Imperial Roman influences, A circular staircase, which was often used to transport deceased bodies down the middle of it, leads down into the tombs that were tunneled into the bedrock during the age of the Antonine emperors.
Pompey’s Pillar Tour (The Memorial Of Diocletian)
Pompey’s Pillar, a Roman triumphal column, is one of the best-known ancient monuments still standing in Alexandria today. The so-called “Pompey Pillar” is the biggest memorial column in Egypt. It is a huge column of red granite, its total height is about 28 m with a diameter at the base of 2.7 m, and towards the capital at the top it tapers to 2.3 m. Lunch meal will be served at a leading restaurant in Alexandria.
The Bibliotheca Alexandrina:
Alexandrian Library in Alexandria is a wonderful reincarnation of the famed ancient library of Alexandria. The original library held the largest collection of manuscripts in the world and was a great center of learning for 600 years until it burned down in the 3rd century. The dramatic new library, resembling an angled discus or a great sundial, was designed by a Norwegian architect and cost about $200 million.
Roman Amphitheatre of Alexandria
The Roman theatre is located in the modern area of Kom El-Dikaa, which is almost in the centre of the city of Alexandria. Dating from the 2nd century A.D it has a large auditorium, about 42m in diameter. The outer face of this building was probably adorned with columns located in several stories. In later times the theatre was rebuilt and its auditorium was diminished to 33.5 m in diameter. It then counted 16 rows of marble seats
Qaitbay Fortress Tour:
The Qaitbay Fort is one of the major historic military construction sites which has been ordered to rise in protection of Egypt against the Turks (Ottoman) during the times of Mamluke Qaitbay in Alexandria.  Sometimes they call it ‘Qaitbay Citadel’ instead of Qaitbay Fort. During the reign of Mamluke Sultan El-Ashraf Sayf El-Din Qaitbay, he founded the fort in the 15th C. as a defensive fortress on the Northern coast of the whole Mediterranean Sea on the Eastern Island of Pharos upon the ruins of the old Light House of Alexandria that got destroyed in an earthquake in the 14th Century. Drive back to Cairo, with direct transfer to your hotel in Cairo.
