Places of Interest
Pyramids at Ghiza Plateau
Located around 12 kilometres from Cairo, the Ghiza Plateau extends on the edge of the Western Desert. Considered by the ancients to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
The Sphinx
Located around 500 metres east of the Pyramid of Khafre, along the monumental road that linked the funerary temple with the lower temple of the Pharaoh. The human head is wearing a nems headcloth with an asp and the false beard of the Pharaohs, while the body is that of crouching lion, a symbol of regal power.
Egyptian Museum
Visiting the renown Cairo Museum is thus indispensable for placing in context such a variety and abundance of archaeological marvels and for tracing a more exhaustive picture of what the Egyptians were capable of from the dawn of the Bronze age, around 4,500 years ago.
Tutankhamun
The visit continues on the first floor where a separate ticket has to be purchased for the hall containing the mummies.  The visitor’s attention is generally concentrated on the recently restored halls containing the 2,099 relics of the Treasure of Tutankhamun.
River Nile
Nile, Nil, is a great river.  With a total length, from its most distant head-stream, of more than 6,700km, it is the longest river in the world.  No other country is so dependent upon a single river as Egypt, which the ancient aptly called the Gift of the Nile.  The greek historian Herodotus wrote: ‘ It possesses more wonders than any other country and exbibits works, greater than can be described.  At Cairo the river is lowest late in May and reaches its height early in September.
Khan El Khalili
Cairo’s world-famous souq (shopping area).  Khan El Khalili is a labyrinthine market place where they sell everything from alabaster pyramids to belly dancing outfits.  Ehtnic jewellery, shisha pipes, brass ornaments, spices and perfume essences are also on sale.  Everything you could want in terms of souvenirs can be found here, along with bargaining fun.  The crowded streets and stalls outside each shop can be a bit overwhelming, so have a rest in Fishawi’s, one of Cairo’s oldest cafes, where poets and novelists used to hang out.  It is a fun place to chill out for a while.
