One of the oldest Islamic cities in the world, it is home to magnificent mosques, madrassas, hammams, and fountains.
  • Start your full-day tour with the Mosque of Muhammed Ali: also known as the Alabaster Mosque for the material which covers it, this enormous 19th-century place of worship was inspired by Istanbul’s New Mosque.
  • The move to visit The Citadel of Saladin: originally constructed in the 12th century to protect the city from attacking Crusaders, the hilltop Saladin Citadel offers some of the most spectacular views over the surrounding city.
  • The second part of your tour will be at The Egyptian Museum. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo (EMC) is the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East, housing over 170,000 artifacts. It has the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world.
  • The architect of the building was selected through an international competition in 1895, which was the first of its kind, and was won by the French architect, Marcel Dourgnon.
