About Cairo

Egypt's capital city of Cairo is one of civilization's ancient cities. If you are a history lover, you can go to the Pyramids of Giza or the Cairo Museum and walk the halls of ancient Egyptian civilization while learning about what the Pharaohs believed the afterlife held in store. At the same time, Cairo is a modern metropolis. The banks of the Nile River are crowded with a forest of skyscrapers including several famous hotels. This is a great place to enjoy the scenery of the Nile. Cairo holds a vast mix of many different cultures. There is a profusion of Coptic art and Islamic-style culture to discover throughout the city. Cairo unfolds like a beautiful story out of “1001 Arabian Nights”.
