Exciting Places to Visit in Cairo

  • Giza Necropolis: Located on the outskirts of the capital Cairo, the pyramids are the milestone of Egyptian history. Their greatness is incomparable as you can hardly find anyone who has never seen the pyramids' footage in the media. Originally, they were built for religious reasons, to preserve the pharaoh's body and belongings for the afterlife. This very concept resulted in us witnessing this 4600-year-old architectural masterpiece. Accordingly, it’s not surprising that The Great Pyramid, Khufu, is the only surviving structure of the famed Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
  • Egyptian Museum: Located in the heart of the city, the museum has roughly 120,000 artifacts either on display or in the storeroom.
  • Old Cairo: It’s characterized by a spectacular atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of modernity. As you wander around The Khedivial Cairo, you’ll be stunned by remarkable Islamic architecture and ancient mosques, such as Mosque of Ibn Tulun, Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan, and Sultan al-Mu'ayyad Mosque.
  • Khan El Khalili: It is a must for antiques and souvenirs collectors with its enormous aggregation of shops.
  • Cairo Tower: It's a lotus-shaped tower at 187 in height. It’s where to relish a 360 panoramic view of Cairo along with a decent meal in its rotating restaurant.
