Follow your guide into the catacombs of Alexandria. You will see sculpted columns, walls and sarcophagi, and learn to recognize the marks of hellenistic and early Roman influence.
Your discovery continues in the Graeco-Roman Museum, and then by Pompey’s pillar, above the ruins of what was once the most magnificent temple in Greek Alexandria. Visit the remains of the 2nd-century Roman amphitheatre, then explore the 15th-century mamluk citadel of Qaitbay.
Witnessing these monuments of the past, you will vividly see how “changing empires wane and wax, are founded, flourish and decay”.
