Cairo has been a meeting point of Mediterranean, Arabic and African trade and civilization for nearly a thousand years. Visit Saladin’s still mighty Cairo citadel to begin your tour of the ‘modern’ city.

But of course flights to Cairo take visitors much further back in time: to the Byzantine churches and alleyways of Coptic Cairo, itself constructed on the ruins of the Roman settlement of Babylon, and the Great Pyramid and Sphinx at nearby Giza – as old for the Ancient Greeks as the Acropolis is to us.
