Cairo & Giza

Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest Egyptian cities in Africa in terms of area and population. A cosmopolitan city that blends charm of the east with a Mediterranean flavor which accommodates 26% of Egyptian population. Cairo, the “city of the thousand spires”, has a wealth of monuments, mosques, tombs, churches, forts, palaces, and hotels representing over fifty centuries of civilization.

It is a melting pot where antiquities of pharaonic dynasties, Greco Roman civilization , Christian and Islamic landmarks co-exists. A dynastic city proud of its warm and friendly people known for their traditional hospitality.

What mainly attracts the visitor in Cairo is that vital blend of a majestic past and a glorious present at top of the Mokattam hills extending on the eastern bank of the Nile, where rises the Citadel of Salah El Din El Ayoubi, towering and impressive. On the western bank of the Nile and on top of Giza plateau rise the colossal pyramids and the mysterious Sphinx, the greatest tribute to Pharaonic art and thought and the vast necropolis of Memphis and Sakkara.

Between the Pyramids and the Citadel, there is modern Cairo with its network of roads, squares, gardens, clubs, amusement parks, luxurious hotels, skyscrapers and Cairo Tower rising 187 meters high.

One of the impressive places in Cairo is the Egyptian Museum ,the largest of Egyptian antiquities museums all over the world.
In the heart of Cairo, the eternal River Nile flows gently from south to north. A Cairo visitor cannot miss sailing in a Nile felucca at sunset.
Cairo invites you to come and enjoy its beautiful all-year weather and visits the immortal monuments and relics, especially the ancients pyramids in Giza.
