Lunch meal will be served at a high-quality local restaurant in Cairo.
Continue to visit The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, which contains many important pieces of history. Not only does it house the world’s largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities, but it also houses the many treasures of King Tutankhamen and many interesting statues that moved with the museum’s many relocations.
There are two main floors of the museum, the ground floor and the first floor. On the ground floor, visitors will find an extensive collection of papyrus and coins used in the Ancient world. The numerous pieces of papyrus are generally small fragments, due to their decay over the past two millennia. Also on the ground floor are artefacts from the New Kingdom, the time period between 1550 and 1070 BC.
These artefacts are generally larger than items created in earlier centuries. The first floor contains artefacts from the final two dynasties of Ancient Egypt. Some artefacts in this area include items from the tombs of the Pharaohs Tuthmosis III, Tuthmosis IV, Amenophis II, Hatshepsut, and Maherpen, and also many artefacts taken from the legendary Valley of the Kings. After that, you will be transferred to Le Meridien hotel for check-in.

Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 312 B.C. and was the capital of Graeco-Roman Egypt. You will visit during Alexandria tour the catacombs of Kom ash-Shuqqafa, a Roman burial site whose family tomb reveals the merging of Egyptian and Roman art and architecture.
Descend below ground to visit the tomb and Caracalla Hall. Back above ground, continue to Pompey’s Pillar, an 82-foot (25-meter) granite column built to honour Emperor Diocletian, who freed the besieged city and brought food to its starving people.
Continuing the Roman theme, the next site in Alexandria tour as your guide will show you is the Roman amphitheatre, possibly the best preserved Roman site in Egypt. The site also includes the remains of a Roman street and homes.
