Cairo is a vibrant city of contrasts located on the banks of the Nile River. A holiday in Cairo offers an exciting mix of ancient and modern. In the bustling heart of the city you will find modern high rises and shopping malls and the elegant riverside Corniche which is lined with luxury hotels and restaurants. To the east of the city is the Citadel which features medieval palaces, minarets and mosques as well as the famous Kahn el Khalili Bazaar. To the west of Cairo is the desert plateau of Giza, the site of the famous Pyramids of Giza. These spectacular monuments have been drawing visitors since Alexander and Herodotus in ancient times and are still one of the world’s ‘must see’ attractions. Cairo offers a variety of experiences; you can explore the ancient wonders of Giza and Memphis, sail the Nile in a traditional felucca, bargain for souvenirs at a bazaar or see the ancient treasures of Tutankhamun at the Egyptian Museum. By night, there are many theatres, restaurants and nightclubs to choose from and the Pyramids Sound and Light Show is a real highlight. A Cairo holiday is a truly unforgettable experience.
