You will meet your guide at your hotel reception in Alexandria to commence your Alexandria highlights tour with lunch. The first of Alexandria highlights is
Go down a winding stairway to see how deep the ancient Greco-Romans tunneled into the bedrock. Initially built for a single wealthy family practicing a fusion of Ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman religion. The Catacombs of Kom El-Shoqafa entombed over 300 mummies. See bearded serpents crowned with the crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt. Hovering solar disc above the archway and customary funerary deities joined with Greco-Roman motifs.
The catacombs are a monumental testament to the enduring myths of Ancient Egypt despite centuries of Greek and Roman rule. Kom El-Shoqqafa means literally “piles of shards”. It was discovered by pure chance in 1900 when a donkey-drawn cart fell into a pit.
Then your Alexandria highlights tour takes you to the Pompey’s Pillar. The Pompey’s Pillar is a Roman triumphal pillar. It is the largest of its type. Pompey’s Pillar is the only known free-standing pillar in Roman Egypt. The pillar’s shaft measures 20.5 meters high with a diameter of 2.7 meters at its base. It was built in 297 AC. It commemorates the victory of the Roman Emperor Diocletian over an Alexandrian revolt.
