Cairo

Cairo holidays

Introduction

Egypt's capital is chaotic, noisy and intoxicating. Cairo is the Middle East and Africa's biggest city, bursting with the energy of 17 million people who live among its minarets, markets, mosques and mazy streets. This is a place of all night ahwas - coffee houses - and belly dancing shows, cultural treasures and felucca trips on the Nile.

The Egyptian Museum in the centre of Cairo is one of the city's biggest draws, with thousands of artefacts including the golden mask of Tutankhamun. The mask belonged to Egypt's most famous pharaoh, whose tomb was found by Howard Carter in the Valley of the Kings in 1922.

Giza lies on the outskirts of Cairo. It's here that visitors can admire the Pyramids of Giza. The three pyramids are the only one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world still standing today and have impressed travellers for centuries. They are a Cairo must-see and a major highlight of an Egypt holiday.

Where to go in Cairo

Giza and the Pyramids

On the outskirts of Cairo is the bustling suburb of Giza, best known as the location of one of Egypt's star visitor attractions - the Great Pyramids of Giza. The pyramids lie on the edge of the Western Desert and are the only monument of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world still standing today.

Central Cairo

Cairo is Africa's biggest city. Its bustling souks and historic landmarks make it a popular stop-off on a tailor-made tour of Egypt. The Nile runs like a vein through the city and the sails of feluccas are a familiar feature on the river, as they have been for centuries.
