Interesting Cities Cairo
Cairo is the only city in the world that hosts antiquities of four civilizations: Pharaonic, Romanian, Christian and Islamic. The artful blend of "old" antiquities and "new" amenities portrays Cairo as the city of "striking" contrasts where you can find ancient relics alongside with contemporary art, medieval bazaars next to hyper markets, never ending arid desert versus a busy frenetic city, an immersion into the past and the present.

Sites of Pharaonic Egypt are not to be missed such as the Pyramids of Giza, the surrounding tombs, the Sphinx, Sun Boats (of Cheops), and the Pyramids of Saqqara. While you explore the Giza Plateau, you can enjoy as well a thrilling camel or horseback ride. At night, there is a captivating laser Sound and Light Showpresented in six languages at the pyramids of Giza.

The biggest attraction within the city center for tourists is the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities where you can explore the largest collection of Egyptian antiquities in the world such as Tutankhamen's (King Tut's) treasures, mummies including the pharaohs Ramses II and III and Seti I, huge columns covered in hieroglyphics, excellent collections of Greek and Roman artifacts, and more highlights from the oldest of civilizations.

The Islamic era in Egypt was generally the golden age for arts and architecture. Examples can be seen in the building of several mosques, fortresses and city walls, in addition to the flourishing of decorative arts. In Islamic Cairo, you can visit the Alabaster Mosque, Sultan Hassan Mosque, Al-Azhar Mosque, Ahmed Ibn Touloon mosque known for its unique shape minaret, Al-Fustat, the first capital of Egypt where Amr Ibn el-Aas built the first mosque in the country, the Nile meter on the island of Rhoda, the fortress of Salah al-Din al-Ayyubi (The Citadel), and the old town.

Old monuments and churches of Coptic Cairo are mainly located in the Old City on the ruins of the Fortress of Babylon. You can visit the Hanging Church (dating to the late 4th and early 5th Century and built on top of the Fortress of Babylon), and many others.

The most outstanding attraction of Modern Cairo is the Cairo Tower with its panoramic view of Cairo, museums such as the Islamic, Coptic and military museums, Khan Khalili Bazaar (Souk renowned for its indigenous character and the magnificent variety of gold and silver works, and many other attractive handicrafts) located amidst Fatimid Cairo. The City of Death is a category apart and merits a visit as well.
