Egyptian Museum, Historical Mosques, Synagogues and Churches of Cairo


Cairo has a lot to live up to; the jewel of the orient, the city of one a thousand minarets and the melting-pot of ancient and modern civilizations are just a few of its monikers.

To take in some of the city's magnitude, take a tour to the Egyptian Museum, the Citadel, the Alabaster mosque, and Coptic Cairo.

The museum houses the magnificent heritage of the pharaohs. See the splendid collection of the famous boy- king Tut-ankh-amon including the breath-taking Golden Mask. See the impressive mummies which still have hair, finger and toe nails and teeth.

Head for the Citadel, a massive fortress built in the twelfth century. Visit the Alabaster Mosque, one of the most attractive mosques in Islamic Cairo. Proceed to Coptic Cairo and do the Hanging Church, the Church of Abu Sirga, and the Jewish Synagogue of Ben Ezra.
