You may feel like exploring the city’s religious diversity with a visit to the majestic Islamic citadel of Salah-el-Din, before searching for treasures at the Khan El-Khalili Bazaar. Or perhaps wander through the streets of Coptic Cairo, home to The Hanging Church, Abu Serga and Ben Ezra Synagogue. For those more inclined towards art and design, the Gayer Anderson Museum displays a patchwork of Islamic form and style. This option also finishes with a walk through Khan El Khalili bazaar.


An Aladdin’s cave of Egypt’s most famous artefacts are all housed within the ornate walls of Cairo’s Egyptian Museum. Come face to face with the reverent beauty of Tutankhamun’s gold mask and be humbled by the immortal inhabitants of the Royal Mummies room. This afternoon perhaps further explore the rich history of this city at your own pace.
