    Nile River

    4.5
    8 reviews

    The Nile is spectacular. Better known for the sights it passes than for the beauties of the river itself, the Nile is a trip back in time. The best way to see it is on a slow boat. You'll pass archaeological sights, long blades of grass, local fisherman, donkey carts, and gorgeous topography. A lazy day of cruising is a ...

    City Stars

    Sheraton Al Matar, Qesm an Nuzhah, Egypt
    4
    8 reviews

    Beat the heat in Cairo’s answer to Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates. Rub elbows with the Cairene elite and window-shop till you drop for the latest in finely stitched niqabs, straight from the runways of the Persian Gulf.

    El Ma'adi

    Maadi Al Khabiri Al Wasti, Al Maadi, Egypt
    4.5
    4 reviews

    Homesick for the anonymity of the West? With the highest number of expats in Cairo, resigned acceptance of the foreign presence from the locals and one of the only Western-style grocery stores in town, Ma'adi feels about as close to the West as you can get this side of the Nile.

    Pyramids of Giza

    Cairo, Egypt
    4.5
    139 reviews

    Visited the Pyramids in 1990. They are as awesome in real life than in the pictures. At the time we were allowed to go in to the King's chamber. The tiny, narrow corridor that went in was quite claustrophobic for some. I certainly felt like Indiana Jones once I was standing on the final chamber. Awesome experience overall

    Egyptian Museum

    Tahrir Square, Cairo Egypt
    4.5
    89 reviews

    The best source of Egyptian history and culture in Cairo. This Neoclassical structure, built in the early 19th century, is home to an extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities, the most notable are probably the objects from the Pharaohs and King Tutankhamun’s tombs.

    63 reviews

    This lovely icon is a must-see and highlight of Cairo. Fewer touts here than by the main pyramids.

    Great Pyramid of Khufu

    Giza Plateau, Giza 12561 Egypt
    4.5
    49 reviews

    The largest of the pyramids in Giza. You may purchase a ticket and crawl your way inside into the King's Chamber. The experience is hot and it is pretty impossible not to have claustrophobia here. Very memorable but crawling inside requires some stamina. The highlight of the pyramid is the view you get of it from outside.

    The Citadel

    Salah Salem Highway, Cairo Egypt
    4.5
    25 reviews

    A must see in Cairo and not far from the other sights of the Islamic part of town. A complex consisting of a couple of mosques, including Mohammed Ali. We hated the Citadel view restaurant... which for some reason seems to be linked to this same entry. Not sure why.

    Church of Saints Sergius and Bacchus (Abu Serga)

    4.5
    2 reviews

    This is a 4th century church and is considered to be the oldest of Cairo's Christian churches. This Church was built on the spot where the Holy Family, Joseph, Mary and the infant Christ, rested at the end of their journey into Egypt. They may have lived here while Joseph worked at the fortress.

    Hanging Church

    Mar Girgis Street, Kaser El Nile Egypt
    4.5
    3 reviews

    It is called Hanging because it was built on the southern gate of the Roman Fortress. Logs of palm trees and layers of stones were constructed above the ruins of the Roman fortress. It has more than a hundred icons and it is the most important coptic church in the country.

    Church of Our Ladyof Zeitoun

    Zeitoun, Cairo
    4.5
    2 reviews

    This is a coptic church where Our Lady had appeared from 1968-1971. She is better known in this place as Our Lady of the Light. We usually go here first from the airport before proceeding to the center of the city since its nearer the Cairo international airport.

    Karnak Temple

    31 reviews

    One of the first sights you will see when you visit Luxor. Easily accessible from town and very impressive. Relatively manageable but you'll want to seek out shade during the midday heat. A guided tour is a helpful way to understand what it was like originally and how it was used.

    Al Azhar Park

    Salah Salem Street, Cairo 11562 Egypt
    4.5
    23 reviews

    One of a handful of the Cairo's green lungs affording excellent views across the Islamic side of the city. There's a token admission fee to pay, but well worth it for some respite from the heat and smog. There's a lakeside cafe at one end and the Citadel View Restaurant at the other. The park is open daily from 8am ...

    Islamic Cairo

    Cairo Egypt
    4.5
    22 reviews

    The residential areas of this part of Cairo are a beautiful place to be lost during the call to prayer. Run down and might make some people nervous but the atmosphere is fantastic and the people were very friendly during my visit.

    Tahrir Square

    3.5
    36 reviews

    So this is where it all happened: the daily protests which eventually led to the Lotus Revolution, a key moment in the Arab Spring of 2011. The square itself speaks more to the echoes of dictatorship than the bustling, cosmopolitan metropolis Cairo is. Though there is the gem of the Egyptian Museum at one end. At the time of writing, ...

    Pyramids of Saqqara

    North Saqqara, Cairo Egypt
    4
    23 reviews

    This is the site with the Step pyramid and the oldest complete stone building complex in the world. The Step pyramid has a rectangular base so it is very different from the ones in Giza. It was a hot sunny day when we visited so make sure you take precautions for the sun and the heat.

    Shubha Mudgal is performing today @ the Cairo Opera House. Unexpectedly reasonably priced tickets & even far more unexpected international choice of performances. A hidden gem. And I can't wait to experience some of the wonderful artistic line-ups. The tower unlike most other City Eyes Seems like a carved minaret of a mosque. Both are must visits. The Opera is ...
