A simply enchanting place to visit.  Isolated in the heart of Egypt’s Western Desert, away from urbanization, Siwa Oasis lies 50 km east of the Libyan borders. Within this little paradise – which remains out of sight except for those who intentionally seek it – a distinctive culture has been preserved, offering its visitors a rich experience unique to the oasis. 

Cruise on the Nile as you enjoy the  food, listen to Arabic music and watch belly dancing as well as the Tanoura show. 

The second city in Egypt after Cairo, famously known as the ‘The Pearl of the Mediterranean’ lies 225 km from Cairo. Its ambiance and culture are more Mediterranean than Middle Eastern.  Alexandria is home to:

      • The Castle of Qaitbay: A defensive stronghold located along the Mediterranean Sea coast.  It formulated an important part of the fortification system of Alexandria in the 15th century AD. 
      • Pompey’s Pillar: A 25 meter red Aswan granite column with a circumference of 9 meters, put up to honor Emperor Diocletain.
      • Catacombs of Kom El-Shouqafa: These tombs are tunneled into the bedrock and have been in existence since the age of the Antoine emperors.  
      • Amphitheater of Kom El-Dikka: Over 30 years of excavation has unearthed this well preserved theatre with galleries, sections of mosaic flooring and marble seats for up to 800 spectators.
      • Library of Alexandria: The largest most significant library of the ancient world which functioned as a major center of scholarship and flourished under the patronage of the Ptolemaic Dynasty.
