Description

You start your day tour at 8 am with a visit to the Christian part of Cairo. Before Egypt became an Islamic country, it was mainly populated by Christians. For this reason there are many Christian monuments in the Coptic quarter of Cairo Old Cairo is home to some of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Cairo. First of all, visit the hanging church, which is over 1000 years old and particularly worth seeing The hanging church owes its name to the fact that it was built on the ruins of the Roman fort Babylon.

Wander through the historic quarter and explore the remains of Fort Babylon. Continue your journey to Ben Ezra Synagogue, the oldest Jewish synagogue in Egypt. Then visit the church of Abu Serga, which is said to be the place where the Holy Family hid during their flight to Egypt

Continue your tour to the Islamic Old City of Cairo, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Islamic city centre of Cairo has a wealth of historical buildings waiting to be explored. First visit the Masjid' Amr Ibn Elas Mosque before you finally reach the Sultan Hasan Mosque, one of the largest and most impressive mosques in Cairo. Next to the mosque of Sultan Hasan is the Al-Rifa'i Mosque, which you will also visit. Then admire the Muhammad Ali Mosque, which is a real eye-catcher with its Ottoman style and baroque elements.
