Cairo Travel Guide

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”.

Take the bus to Alexandria, return to Cairo and take a car to Islamia, then go to Suez, return that day. Ask the Alamu brothers, what attractions can you see in Ismailia? If you chartered from Cairo to Iraq And the two small cities of Su, 100LE can be it.” It is not recommended to charter a car, because you don’t have to go to the Ramses station near the price. If you want to feel the feeling of floating, then take this, but it’s best. Don't do it!
