Description

You will start your day tour at 8 am with visiting Old Cairo. Old Cairo is the home of the Coptic Christian community and therefore it is also known as Coptic Cairo. Although the district of Southern Cairo is a relatively small area, it is filled with rich history and a lot of Coptic churches. Many Christian churches and other sites date back to the centuries between the decline of the pharaonic religion and when Egypt had a Christian majority.

You will first visit the Hanging Church (The Church of the Virgin Mary). The name of the church arises from the fact that it was built on the southern gate of the Roman Fortress. Take a walk through the beautiful quarter and discover the remains of the Babylon fortress. Continue your way to the Ben Ezra Synagoge, the oldest Jewish synagogue in Egypt and admire its basilician structure. Then visit the Church of St. Sergius (Abu Serga), the oldest church in Egypt. The church is famous for having been constructed upon the crypt of the Holy Family.

Continue your tour to Islamic Cairo that was founded in 642 A.D. Visit the Masjid' Amr Ibn Elas Mosque followed by a visit of the biggest mosque in Cairo called El Sultan Hassan Mosque. Afterwards you will pay a visit to the Al-Rifa’i royal mosque. Explore the great mosque of Muhammad Ali which is situated in the Citadel of Cairo. End your day tour with a visit of a major souk in the Islamic district of Cairo, the Khan Khalili Bazaar. Take a stroll around the colorful and exciting market before you will be taken back to your hotel.
