Begin this incredible Wheelchair Accessible Alexandria Trip from Cairo at 7:00 in the morning with assistance from your hotel by Cairo Top Tours Egyptologist guide, and transfer by a private A/ C vehicle to Alexandria, about 220 km north-west of Cairo. Upon arrival around 10:00 AM, you will start your Cairo to Alexandria Wheelchair Tours by visiting the Roman Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa. Archaeologists believe that the Catacombs began in the 2nd century B.C and were used to bury the dead for the next 200 years. This was a period in the history of the city of Alexandria when there was a great mix of different cultures. Of course, there was the ancient history of the great Egyptian kingdoms dating back thousands of years combined with the new Roman style of art.
Then move to visit Pompey's Pillar, which has nothing to do with Pompey. The story behind the name refers to the possible burial place of the Roman general when he fled to Egypt and was killed after being defeated in a significant battle in Greece against Caesar. The red granite column was probably built to honor the emperor, Diocletian. Today it is 25 meters high and is the oldest monument in Alexandria.
Visit then the Citadel of Qaitbay which was built during the 15th century by the Mamluk Sultan Qeitbay, to protect the city from the threat of the crusaders, this wonderful Islamic monument was built using the ruins of the old lighthouse which was built by Ptolemy in the 3rd century B.C. The lighthouse Pharos was damaged during an earthquake that occurred in Egypt around 1303 B.C.
Now we will see the Library of Alexandria, which is not just an extraordinarily beautiful building; it is also a vast complex where art, history, philosophy, and science merge. Have a pleasant lunch meal in a very good quality restaurant that serves seafood from the freshest ingredients before being transferred back after your Alexandria day trip from Cairo is over.
