WHAT YOU WILL SEE IN CAIRO
  

1. The Egyptian Museum



One of the most famous museums in the world with 120,000 items.  It houses the world's largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities including many beautifully preserved mummies as well as stunning ivory and gold artifacts from the reign of King Tutankhamen. 


2. The Pyramids of Giza.



The pyramids of Giza lie on the edge of Cairo where the vast Sahara desert starts.  Did you know that the Pharaoh Khufu built the first pyramid taking over 23 years and using two million blocks of stone weighing an average two and half tons each ?



3. The Sphinx.



A giant limestone statue with the body of a lion and the head of a human. It was built approximately 2,500BC probably by the pharaoh Khafra.  In medieval times locals paid homage to the Sphinx believing it to be the talisman of the Nile and that their harvest depended on his goodwill.  It's not known how the Sphinx lost his nose but one stories says it was as a result of a cannon ball shot by Napoleon's soldiers.
 

4. Khan El-Khalili


 

Probably Cairo's oldest, largest and most famous souk. It dates back to the fourteenth century when the spice trade flourished and was a man reason for the city's rise and early prosperity.  Today it's a great place for shopping or relaxing in one of the traditional coffee houses to soak up the atmosphere.  The famous Al Azhar University and mosque can be found close by.
