The Great Egyptian Pyramids
It goes without saying that the Pyramids are among the most popular destination to visit in Egypt. They are situated within the city, bordering the Nile Valley and the Sahara desert. Never mind that they are 4,500 years old; they will still blow your mind when you see them.
At the entrance to the complex is another attraction worth mentioning; the Sphinx, a stone-carved half-man/half-lion that guards the Sun Temple .
The Egyptian Museum in Cairo
Even if museums are not your thing, the Egyptian Museum will bowl you over. This attraction is worth all the hype that you have heard or read about. With its rich array of ancient Egyptian artifacts, architecture and items, other museums pale in significance. Some of the highlights in the Egyptian Museum include King Tutankhamen’s gold mask and mummies. Fun fact:The Egyptian Museum boasts of more than a hundred thousand items contained in one hundred and seven galleries and viewing rooms.
Citadel and Mosque of Ali Pasha The Cairo Citadel
This Islamic-era fortress is only twenty minutes from the Egyptian Museum. Constructed in the ‘Ottoman-style’ from marble, it is a sight for your eyes. From the top of Mt Mokattam, the view is unmatched.
Khan El Khalili Bazaar
A Cairo and Nile Cruise isn’t complete without hitting the bazaars, and the Khan el Khalili market is the best of them. Extremely busy, here you will get anything under the sun. You can shop with abandon for brass lamps, spices, herbal teas, vibrant veils, shisha, silver jewelry, among other items.
