Holidays in Cairo

Once Saladin made Cairo the capital of his Egyptian empire in 1169, it began its rise as the region’s super-city. The modern history of Cairo may now been one of political strife. But as and when calmer times return it will once again be an essential destination for any serious traveller.

Cairo holidays take you to a megapolis between the Nile Delta and Alexandria. Start your journey through time at Saladin’s citadel, then venture back through the warrens of Coptic Cairo, the city’s Roman remains and finally to nearby Giza, the greatest of the surviving pyramids and the Great Sphinx. All that sightseeing will leave you hungry – make sure your guides take you to an authentic Arabic restaurant where the flatbread is oven-fresh and the dips unlike anything you’ve tasted before.
