You will be meet by our professional Egyptology English speaking guide to accompany you by private air conditional car from your hotel in Cairo to Alexandria to visit Greco roman museum which is the Arab translation of the ancient Greek name, Lofus Kiramaikos, It contains a very big variety of coins from different countries. The collection, which covers the period from the 3rd century BC to the 7th century AD, is a fascinating record of civilization in the process of change as religions merged and society evolved. Also the museum contains hundreds of precious antiques. Then proceed to visit the catacomb of Kom El-Shuqafa which is one of Alexandria most memorable monuments. Kom El-Shuqafa meaning "Mound of Shards" or "Potsherds." Its actual ancient Egyptian name was Ra-Qedil. The catacombs are unique both for their plan and for its decoration which represents a melding and mixing of the cultures and traditions of the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Then proceed to visit The Roman Amphitheatre in Alexandria. Every town in ancient Rome had an amphitheatre, which means, "double theatre". They were grand and impressive, shaped in a half circle, open to the sky, and might have held 100.000 people.

The stage had no curtain; it was just a stone platform. Imagine yourself in ancient Alexandria, in the Roman theatre on a hot afternoon. All you can smell is the Mediterranean mist. All you can see are wild beasts, driven in through the tall doorway, and the fighters coming in from all around the floor. Famous jockeys and gladiators are walking in, and then the excitement begins. Then proceed to visit the Muntazah Complex . This 115 acre complex is surrounded by great walls from the south, east and west, and with the beach on its north side. This area used to belong to the Mohamed Ali family that ruled Egypt from the mid 19th century until 1952. Then driveback to your hotel.
