Egypt is where it all begins and as the Greek historian Herodotus creatively described it in his famous saying: Egypt is the gift of the Nile. Egypt holidays are unforgettable, not only for their history and sightseeing, but for the colourful characters, extremely warm weather, and the rather endearing lifestyle. No trip to Egypt is really complete without visiting Cairo, its vibrant capital city that possesses a strong contrast of medieval citadels and modern skyscrapers. Here you will discover the awe-inspiring Pyramids of Giza, the equally impressive and much loved Sphinx, and the treasures of one of the country's most well-known pharos, Tutankhamun. It is an exhilaratingly exotic city with many wonderful sites to see, including museums, parks and splendid bazaars.
Home to the best Pharaonic, Coptic and Islamic sights in Egypt, Cairo will undoubtedly leave you wanting to explore more of Egypt.
