The huge historic city of Cairo is one of the most important places in human history so good job it’s also a fantastic holiday destination. Flights to Cairo will allow you to see some of the most famous sights in the world and leave you with unforgettable memories.
One of the top destinations in Cairo is Giza in the west, home to the legendary pyramids and the Sphinx. The Pyramid of Khufu is the only remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and this 4,500-year-old mausoleum is not to be missed. The whole Giza necropolis is full of amazing archaeological sites such as the Tomb of Seshemnufer IV and the Valley Temple of Khafre. Interspersed among all the ancient sights are modern museums such as the Solar Barque Museum which house many smaller attractions. For added fun, you can take a camel ride around the area.
Along the River Nile and driving around the busy streets, you’ll see how varied the different parts of Cairo are. In Islamic Cairo, the historic centre, you’ll find the famous Mohamed Ali Mosque within the Citadel, a stunning example of Islamic architecture with peerless views of the whole city: it’s a definite must when you get cheap flights to Cairo. To the south is Old Cairo which contains Coptic Cairo; here you’ll find many old Christian churches grouped together. North from here, Midan El Tahrir is the epicentre of contemporary civic and cultural life and the streets of Downtown are reminiscent of 19th-century Paris.
