Cairo


CAIRO


Cairo is a city richly steeped in history and tradition, from the incomparable Pyramids to the matchless exhibits of its museum. Come and discover the hidden alleys, ancient Coptic heart and the bustling bazaars of this captivating city. The ‘Mother of the World’ as she is better known, Cairo’s cultural influences spread far beyond her city limits. The deserts surrounding her are filled with reminders of a glorious heritage that still permeates every aspect of Egyptian life.


THE PYRAMIDS & SPHINX AT GIZA These iconic structures are the last survivors of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. The Great Pyramid, built by the Pharaoh Cheops nearly 5,000 years ago took two decades to construct. Sharing the desert plateau is the mysterious Sphinx carved from a single piece of bedrock which stands guard over the pyramids.


THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUM The Egyptian Museum is home to the most comprehensive collection of Egyptian antiquities in the world. There are a staggering 120,000 exhibits on view ranging from towering granite statues and mummified remains of the ancient Pharaohs to the most prized possession, the treasures of Tutankhamun.


MEMPHIS & SAQQARA The old capital of the Ancient Kingdom, Memphis predates Cairo by some 4,000 years. Once one of the greatest cities of its time, today it plays host to the vast necropolis site of Saqqara and is one of the richest archaeological sites in all of Egypt.
