Cairo: Walk in the footsteps of the Pharaohs Egypt's capital city is surrounded by World Heritage sites preserving stunning monuments of the country's ancient past. Begin exploring this incredible history at the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, one of the world's most important collections of archaeological artefacts; among the 11,000 objects housed there are the mind-boggling treasures found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Just outside the city, visit the awe-inspiring pyramid complexes of Giza and Sakkara, built to honour the pharaohs and usher them into the afterlife. The colossal Sphinx stands guard still, over 4000 years after it was built during Egypt's Old Kingdom. Cairo is dubbed “the city of a thousand minarets,” with one of the world's highest concentrations of historic Islamic architecture, including the Mosque of al-Azhar, the Qalawun Complex, and the dramatic Citadel with its monumental Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha, or Alabaster Mosque. The mediaeval Khan el-khalili souk is a must for gold, copper, spices and other traditional souvenirs. Egypt's Coptic heritage can be seen at the Babylon Fortress and the Hanging Church, with its 110 exquisite icons dating back centuries.
