Firstly, you will visit The old Al-Saad Bassili Palace, which dates back to 1923 and houses the museum. It is the first museum in Egypt that narrates the history of the people of Alexandria through antiquity, as opposed to being a building storing antiquities. Each of the museum's three floors depicts a different period of Egyptian history.
Alexandria was once a Greco-Roman city of great splendor. A multitude of ancient artifacts has been discovered in recent years during underwater excavations in the area.
The Pharaonic collection spans each critical period and includes items from the Old, Middle, and New Kingdoms. One of the highlights is a replica of a tomb, similar to those in the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank at Luxor (ancient Thebes), that includes a mummy along with genuine funerary items.
The last floor is devoted to Coptic and Islamic items and displays a wide range of objects from Egypt's two most prominent religious traditions. There is also a section devoted to the former royal family of Egypt that includes magnificent jewelry, bejeweled gold and silver awards, and other items from their residence.
After your visit to the museum, your tour will continue with a drive along the Mediterranean coast to the Montaza Gardens, which feature 115 acres of gardens surrounded by great walls on three sides and the sea. Within its walls, you will see the exterior of the Montaza Palace, built in 1932 by King Fouad and inherited by his son King Farouk, the last of the Egyptian kings. As you drive through the gardens, photo stops will be made along the way.
then you will return to back to your ship.
