Tour : Alexandria - Half day National Museum - Pompeys Pillar and The Catacombs

Enjoy a half day tour taking in three of Alexandria`s tourism attractions, including a stop at the National Museum, filled with archaelological pieces as well as offering a welcome break from the sun

Alexandria National Museum: The museum comprises more than 1,800 archaeological pieces that narrate the Pharaonic, Greek, Roman, Coptic, Islamic, and modern history of Egypt. One display features pieces picked up from the seabed at Abu Kir Bay and the eastern harbor near the Qaitbay Citadel. The Alexandria Museum is number 27 in the series of historic and archaeological museums across Egypt.

Pompey`s Pillar: A column of red Aswan granite standing some 90 feet high, with a circumference of 27 feet, the pillar was erected in honor of the Emperor Diocletian.

The Catacombs of Kom E-Shouqafa: These tombs were tunnelled into bedrock at the time of the Antonine emperors in the 2nd century AD for a single wealthy family still practicing the ancient religion. Although the funerary motifs are purely ancient Egyptian, the architects and artists were schooled in the Graeco-Roman style.
