Cruise to a city both medieval & modern
This state-of-the-art port is a striking contrast to the wonders of antiquity you will find in Cairo. The city unfolds in layers, beginning with the Great Pyramids of Giza, resting mysterious and silent on the sands of time, and the wealth of antiquities in the Egyptian Museum, where many stories are told.
The medieval Islamic city is full of monuments: mosques, elegant old houses, and the Citadel of Saladin, famous 12th century caliph and warrior. Here too is Khan al-Khalili, the giant bazaar enjoyed by today’s shoppers as it was by the 14th century traveling traders who first haggled here. Woven throughout are the modern city, and the lives of its 17 million inhabitants.
