After that you will be transferred to Pompey's Pillar was named after Pompey, a Roman political and military leader, the pillar is in no way related to him. that's because it was said that Pompey betrayed his nation and left the army during a critical time of war and flee to his hometown, then he was killed and his head was hung on top of the pillar.
The Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa were excavated in the mother rock at the time of Emperor Antoninus, in the second century A.D. These tombs represent the last great existing construction for the sake of the ancient Egyptian religion. The characteristics of the Catacombs of Kom El Shohafa, its designs, and its decorations allow us to deduce that its construction was made in different periods, between the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd centuries A.D.
Then we will visit the Islamic fortification of Alexandria from the seaside that was built by the Muslim ruler Qaitbey upon the ruins of the ancient Lighthouse Pharos of Alexandria, the fortress enjoys a perfect position, at the end of a narrow strip of land extending into the Eastern Port of Alexandria.
