Cairo

Located at the junction of Africa and the Middle East, the bustling city of Cairo is one of the world’s most colourful and exciting settlements. Egypt’s capital has a multitude of lively souks and historic mosques to explore, whilst a plethora of restaurants and hotels can be found lining the Nile river. The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities is an essential stop on any Cairo itinerary and contains mummified pharaohs, the mysterious treasures of Tutankhamun and thousands of other priceless exhibits. Meanwhile, nearby Tahrir Square, the focal point of the country’s Arab Spring revolution, offers the chance to witness the site of more recent history. A little outside the city, the Sphinx and the Pyramids at Giza are breathtaking sights which will complete your unforgettable holiday to Egypt.
