HIGHLIGHTS OF THE DAY

THE PYRAMIDS OF GIZA – The sole survivors from the ancient Greek-listed Seven Wonders of the World, the pyramids of Giza are the planet’s oldest tourist attraction! Constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks it is thought to have taken more than 20 years to construct.
They are Egypt’s most visited monuments and among the world’s greatest tourist attractions.

THE SPHINX is carved from a single piece of stone. It is a lion with the head of a pharaoh thought to be the portrait of Chepren.

THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUM: No Egypt tour is complete without a visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. With over 120,000 artefacts, the museum houses an unbelievable exhibit depicting ancient Egypt’s glorious reign. Mummies, sarcophagi, pottery, jewellery and of course King Tutankhamen’s treasures, it’s all there. The boy-king’s death-mask – discovered in its tomb – is made of solid gold and it has been described as the most beautiful object ever made.

CHURCH OF ST.SERGIUS (ABU SERGA) – A 5th century basilica built over crypt where the Holy Family is believed to have stayed during their flight into Egypt.

CHURCH OF ST.MERCURIUS (ABU SEFEIN) – boasts a unique collection of Coptic art including 175 icons that depict scenes from the old and new testaments, wall paintings, etching and stained glass.

BEN EZRA SYNAGOGUE – Modest in appearance, delightful in interior and boasting of legends, the Ben Ezra synagogue is the supreme Jewish monument in Cairo. Legends claim that the synagogue is built on the spot where pharaoh’s daughter found Moses in the bulrushes and where Jeremiah spoke to survivors after the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar.
The most important recent event is the finding of medieval manuscripts in 1894. The collection, called Geniza, , counted more than 250,000 pages, dating to the period between 1002 and 1266.

AL AZHAR UNIVERSITY AND MOSQUE: Al-Azhar is today the most important religious university in the Muslim world, with as much as 90,000 students. It is perhaps the oldest university in the whole world. The heart of Al-Azhar is the mosque quarters. Unlike so many mosques around the Muslim world, it is fully open for visitors. The architecture is stunning; the size of the roofed hall is quite impressive.

THE KHAN EL KHALILI: The most famous of oriental bazaars it is a treasure of trove of medieval craftsmanship. Shop to your total hearts content- for the Egyptian artifacts…or order yourself a sheesha, indulge and watch the world go by…both very enjoyable pass times!!
