Egypt is probably the world’s oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 BC, historically. Egypt is one of the oldest vacation spots. Early Greeks, Romans and others went there just for fun, and to see the wonders of some of mankind’s earliest triumphs. But Egypt is much more than Pyramids and monuments. It is also Red Sea scuba diving, hot night spots, luxury hotels and five star restaurants. It is romantic cruises down the Nile on festive river boats, a night at the grand opera and it is a cultural experience like none you have ever experienced. Egypt is a land bustling with life, sound, visual beauty and excitement. More than anything else, we want you to think of Egypt as fun. For thousands of years, it has been the playground of emperors and kings.

Cairo Tower

It has become one of Cairo’s most famous landmarks after the Pyramids of Giza and many famous figures – presidents, politicians and movie-stars including Katherine Hepburn – have marvelled at a truly unique view of Cairo.

Designed by Egyptian architect, Naoun Chebib, the tower was built using ganite, between the years 1954 to 1961.  Granite is also the same material used by ancient Egyptians which is symbolic in its own way as is its unique structure and fantastical form.

The best time to visit is at dusk, to take in the illumination of the Tower, the city’s twinkling lights, and the Giza and Sakkara pyramids to the west.

The Great Pyramid

The Great Pyramid of Giza is a defining symbol of Egypt and the last of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World. It is located on the Giza plateau near the modern city of Cairo and was built over a twenty-year period during the reign of the king Khufu. Until the Eiffel Tower was completed in Paris, France in 1889 CE, the Great Pyramid was the tallest structure made by human hands in the world; a record it held for over 3,000 years.

The Pyramid, 756 feet wide and 481 feet high, is the largest of three principal pyramids at the Giza Necropolis. It was built by 100,000 men between 2580 and 2560 BC using over 5 million tons of limestone. The largest blocks, transported from Aswan (over 500 miles away) weigh about 80 tons.

The Pyramid is exceptionally well-preserved and is surrounded by a large burial site, which includes two temples, two other large pyramids (dedicated to Khafre and Menkaure), a number of smaller satellite pyramids, small mastaba tombs for nobles, large cemeteries to the east and west, and the Great Sphinx to the south east.

The Egyptian Museum

Established in 1902, and housed in a distinctive red brick building on Tahrir Square, the Museum’s collection extends to over 120,000 artefacts. The highlight is undoubtedly the Golden Mask of Tutankhamen, which rested over the King’s bandaged face in his sarcophagus; composed of 11 kilograms of solid gold, the Mask is thought to represent the King’s features.

The Museum also houses a large number of other artefacts discovered in Tutankhamen’s tomb, including a decorated chest, ivory and gold bracelets and other jewellery and weapons.

Other notable pieces include the mummified remains of a number of Pharaohs, including the newly discovered mummy of Queen Hatshepsut.
