Why Visit Cairo?

Why Visit Cairo?

One of the largest cities in the Middle Eastern region as well as the political and cultural heart of Egypt, visiting Cairo means that there will never be a dull moment during your stay.

While Cairo is proud of its exalted place in Egypt’s extensive history, it also equally embraces modern times with its bustling souks, lovely parks that offer a retreat from the fast pace of the city, and lively nightlife activities ranging from a night at the opera to live concerts. There is so much to see and do during your stay in Cairo that you may feel overwhelmed by all of your options!

Things To Do In Cairo

Taking a tour of The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities is an absolute must-do during your time in Cairo. With two floors filled with exhibits of mummies, coins, statues, sarcophagi and many other items recovered through various archaeological excavations, a tour of this museum allows an even greater appreciation of the splendors of Ancient Egypt. For a great view of Cairo without having to ascend the Cairo Tower, the Citadel and Mosque of Mohamed Ali Pasha is a great spot to take pictures of the city with the Pyramids in the background. A short distance from the Citadel, the Saint Samaan The Tanner Monastery is a tribute to the ingenuity of Egyptians, where quarters for monks as well as Coptic churches have been built within enormous caves as well as beneath nearby cliffs. Should you find yourself missing the sight of greenery, a stroll through Al-Azhar park can be very relaxing.
