Info about Cairo

Area:
453 km2
Elevation:
23 m
Overview

Cairo, the Triumphant City, is Egypt’s wonderful capital. It is the largest city in both the Middle East and Africa and lies at the centre of all routes leading to, and from Asia, Africa and Europe.
The city extends on the banks of the River Nile to the south of its delta.
Cairo is the administrative capital and, close by, is almost every Egypt Pyramid, such as the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Ancient Egyptian City of Memphis and Capital of the Old Kingdom, on the very edge of the city.
Cairo provides great and well organized culture, including art galleries and music halls, such as the Cairo Opera House.
The city also provides some of the best accommodations and restaurants in the world, such as the Cairo Marriott and the Four Seasons.
Great part of the incredible and unbelievable charm of the capital of Egypt is the result of 2000 years mixture of Islamic, Christian Coptic and Jewish culture. An incredible and unique mixture that still keeps on flourishing to this day.

Overall Guide : There are actually over 100 pyramids in Egypt and most of them are grouped around and near the City of Cairo. Giza is, of course, the home of Egypt's best known pyramids, including the largest one... more in Egypt, that of Khufu. In addition to the major pyramids, there are also no less than six pyramids built for queens, together with even smaller cult pyramids. There are also many tombs, a number of temples, worker villages and the famous Great Sphinx. One of Cairo's many epitaphs is the "City of 1,000 Minarets". The city’s mosques date from the earliest periods of Islam up to the modern varieties. Here are some of them: Al-Maridani mosque, El-Aqmar Mosque (Gray Mosque), the Mosque of El-Hakim, Ibn Tulun Mosque, the Mosque of Sulayman Pasha al-Khadim, and more and more. The Egyptian Museum contains incredible and unique treasures as the The Tutankhamun Collection or the Royal Mummies. More than a million and half tourists visit the museum annually, in addition to half a million Egyptians.

Overall Guide : Cairo is the largest city in Africa and its treasures are kept in the Egyptian Museum (don't miss it). And there's Giza, where there are the majestic pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure and the Sphinx (a real spectacle). I... more also recommend taking a cruise along the Nile, from Luxor to Aswan.
