In the morning, travel from Cairo to Alexandria. Visit the Roman theatre of Kom el Dikka, as well as the Montazah Summer Palace. In the evening, opt to head to one of the city's seafood restaurants.

Set out with your CEO to visit the fort and citadel of Qaitbay. The citadel was built on the spot of the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Visit Pompey's Pillar and the catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, built for a single wealthy family. Finally, visit the new Alexandria Library.
