Itinerary

Tour To Egyptian Museum, Saladin Citadel And Khan El-Khalili

You will meet your guide at your hotel reception to commence your tour to Egyptian Museum.

The Egyptian Museum:

Your first of your tour to Egyptian Museum is at the Egyptian Museum. The Egyptian Museum is the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East and houses the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world. The museum displays an extensive collection spanning from the Predynastic Period to the Greco-Roman Era. The museum is home to some of the world’s most magnificent ancient masterpieces.

Among the museum’s unrivaled collection is the treasure of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamen, the complete burials of Yuya and Thuya, and the Narmer Palette commemorating the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under one king, which is also among the museum’s invaluable artifacts. The museum also houses the splendid statues of the great kings Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, the builders of the pyramids at the Giza plateau. An extensive collection of papyri, sarcophagi, and jewelry, among other objects, completes this uniquely expansive museum.
 
Saladin Citadel: 
 
Your second stop of your tour to Egyptian Museum is at the Citadel of Saladin. The Citadel of Saladin, known colloquially in English as the Cairo Citadel, is strategically located on a promontory beneath the Mokattam Mountain which made it difficult to attack. It was considered the most impressive and ambitious military fortification at the time of its construction. Subsequent Islamic rulers of the Mamluk Sultanate and the Ottoman Empire, El-Nasir Muhammad and Muhammad Ali Pasha respectively, redeveloped and installed additional defenses. Thanks to this elaborate fortification, Cairo was never subjected to a siege, and therefore, the Citadel has never fallen in history.
 
Khan El-Khalili Bazaar: 
 
End your tour to Egyptian Museum at Khan El-Khalili Bazaar. Khan El Khalili is a huge Souk (Market). Imagine dozens and dozens of booths as far as the eye can see, open from early morning until sunset, and in the middle of it all, a constant energetic going and coming! A sort of “Aladdin’s cave”, which mixes souvenirs for tourists (plastic pyramids, small cloth camels…), everyday items (soap, blankets…) and rare gems: As well, as old Arab books and very beautiful precious stones with fascinating glints all found at Khan El Khalili.
 
Your tour to Egyptian Museum will be ended with a transfer back to your hotel.
