Itinerary

Day 1:Alexandria Exploration – Kom El Shoqafa & Pompey Pillar

Embark on an unforgettable journey from Cairo to Alexandria, where our dedicated tour guide will meet you at your chosen location at the agreed pick-up time. Relax in the comfort of a private air-conditioned vehicle as we commence your overnight tour. The 2.5-hour drive includes a brief leg-stretching stop, during which your knowledgeable tour guide will provide captivating historical insights.

Upon arrival in Alexandria, our exploration begins with a visit to the renowned Pompey’s Pillar, a striking architectural marvel standing at the heart of the Alexandrian Serapeum ruins. Built during the Ptolemaic kingdom, this grand temple was dedicated to the god Serapis, the guardian of Alexandria.

Next, we proceed to the magnificent Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, one of the largest Roman catacombs. Originally carved for Pharaonic purposes and later romanized, these catacombs were in use until the late 4th century A.D. Descend the cylindrical water well staircase to explore the three floors of catacombs.

Following the historical excursions, we head to the main corniche street for a delightful seafood lunch at one of Alexandria’s finest restaurants, offering a panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea. Afterward, we transfer you to your hotel for check-in and an overnight stay. If you desire an evening adventure, our private tour guide is available for a leisurely stroll and an opportunity to sample Alexandria’s famous desserts.

Included Meals: Lunch

Day 2:Qaitbay Citadel – Alexandria Bibliotheca

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the hotel before meeting your dedicated tour guide and driver for another captivating day in Alexandria. Today, we visit the Qaitbay Citadel, constructed on the remnants of the ancient Lighthouse Pharos—one of the seven wonders of the world.

Destroyed by an earthquake during the 6th century, the lighthouse’s remnants were utilized by Mamluk Sultan Qaitbay to build the formidable coastal stronghold of Qaitbay Citadel. En route back to Cairo, make a stop at the modern Library of Alexandria, a remarkable cultural institution opened in 1996 with UNESCO’s assistance.

As we journey back to the capital, take a break at one of the centrally located malls for a hot beverage. The approximately two-hour drive allows for relaxation and reflection on the memorable experiences of your Alexandria Overnight tour from Cairo. We sincerely hope you had an enjoyable time.
