Cairo

This city on the Nile is a hub of Arab culture and a source of ancient history. Cairo is the biggest city in the Middle East, with an estimated population of 11 million – the result is a chaos and vibrancy that can both overwhelm and exhilarate. Concentrate on the prize attractions and enjoy this astonishing city. Gape at the celebrated Pyramids of Giza, inspect Tutankhamun’s gold mask at the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, barter for jewellery at the Khan el-Khalili souk, and admire the Al-Azhar mosque. Then hunt down a quiet moment (say, over coffee at a traditional coffeehouse) where you can reflect on this city the Egyptians call Um al-Dunya – the Mother of the World.

Get inspired by... ancient relics. Hire a guide to help you find and appreciate the highlights of the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities – including royal mummies and golden masks of pharaohs. city panoramas.

Enjoy a cultural evening of Egyptian folklore and dance while watching the whirling dervishes at the beautiful Al Ghouri Wakala. overwhelming first impressions. It’s hard not to be bowled over by your first sighting of the Pyramids of Giza, guarded by the majestic Sphinx.

Did you know...? At Saqqara, outside Cairo, is the Step Pyramid of Zoser. This was Egypt’s first pyramid (built in the 27th century BC), and the inspiration for those built at Giza.
