Founded in 2,000 BC, Egypt’s capital is one of Africa’s largest cities brimming with historical landmarks, vibrant street markets and plenty of adventurous pursuits.

Malta to Cairo
Standing proudly on the banks of the River Nile, Cairo conjures up images of ancient times with its various architectural marvels dating from Roman, Arab and Turkish times. As you wander around the narrow, twisting streets of Cairo’s UNESCO-listed old quarter, Misr al Qadimah, you’ll stumble upon one historic monument after another, which add up to more than 400 in total. 

This quarter is also home to the numerous excitingly chaotic souks (markets) of Cairo, the biggest one being Khan el-Khalili. Here you can get your hands on all things colourful and ethnic, ranging from gold, copperware, textiles, carpets, lamps, ceramics, spices as well as perfumes!

Catch a glimpse of Cairo from above, even all the way to the Pyramids on a clear day, by heading to the Citadel.  Located on top of a hill, this is one of the few car-free areas in Cairo, allowing you to explore every nook and cranny securely and silently. One point of interest you simply cannot miss while here is the Mosque of Muhammad Ali, whose colossal dome and minarets majestically dominate Cairo’s skyline. 

Of course, no trip to Cairo is complete without a visit to its most sought-after attractions; the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx. Fixating visitors with its grandiosity and timeless beauty, the Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and only remaining wonder of the Ancient World. For a deeper insight into Egypt’s rich history, be sure to pay a visit to the Egyptian Museum, displaying a vast collection of antiquities, among them the treasures of Tutankhamen.

One of Cairo’s most striking features is its contrast between old and new, East and West. Besides its remarkable ancient side, visitors are often surprised to discover that Cairo also boasts skyscrapers, Western-style hotels and department stores, not to mention a buzzing nightlife!

To the delight of adventure seekers, Cairo’s proximity to the desert presents plenty of opportunities for an exotic adventure. Watch a spectacular desert sunrise, visit an oasis, drive over sand dunes or befriend a camel for the ultimate Middle Eastern experience.
