One of the most famous places in the world is the area around the three pyramids of Giza. We have no idea how the building was put together when it was first built. King Khufu ordered the construction of the Cheops pyramid, the oldest and most significant of these buildings. The son of King Khufu, King Khafre, was in charge of building the second and third-largest pyramids. King Khafre built all three pyramids. Most people call him “Menkaure,” but he was the son of Khafre and the grandson of Cheops. Khafre and Cheops were the names of both his grandfather and grandmother on his father’s side. It’s possible that the Sphinx, a monster with a lion’s body and a human’s head, really lives nearby. The Temple of King Khafre is also in the Valley.

2-The Museum of Egypt

You can walk to Tahrir Square in the center of Cairo in a few minutes. Every person who visits Egypt should go to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The Egyptian Museum was founded in 1902 to keep and show off artifacts from ancient Egypt. This museum has the largest and most complete collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts that has ever been put together. There are still about 120,000 artifacts to be found. Diamonds that were buried with Tutankhamun are among them. Almost all of the mummies in the world were found in the 1800s. About 2700 years before the common era, the Egyptian Empire began, and this exhibition covers both that time and the Greco-Roman period that came after it. The show covers almost four thousand years of human history.

3-Sharm el-Sheikh

Egypt has a long history and a lot of cultures. It has beautiful beaches, protected natural areas, and monuments and buildings from the past and present. Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, is a popular place to go on vacation because it has a beachy vibe and is close to the end of the Sinai peninsula. It is soaked in the Red Sea, known for its beautiful coral reefs and clear waters. The river is a great place to spend the day. Because this area has a lot of marine life, snorkeling and scuba diving are great things to do there. Since Ras Mohamed is a protected natural area, much work has been done to protect its environment. Sharm el Sheikh is known for its excellent scuba diving and lively nightlife, including a wide range of restaurants, bars, and clubs.

4-Luxor

Visitors to Upper (or Southern) Egypt can’t miss this city because it is close to some of Egypt’s most famous historical sites. The city’s old name was Thebes, and it used to be a trendy place. Its borders go along the Nile on both the west and east sides. Many things have been said about Luxor, including that it is “the biggest open-air museum in the world.” On the east side of the Nile River, the ruins of the ancient temples of Karnak and Luxor can be found in the middle of the modern city. Many old buildings, such as temples and tombs, have been located on the West Bank. Egypt gets a lot of tourists every year who want to see the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, and the Temple of Hatshepsut, among other famous places.

If you want to see the sunrise from a hot air balloon, you must get a good night’s sleep. Luxor was the center of the ancient Egyptian government for thousands of years. At one point, this place was called Thebes. This is a rare chance to think about the last four thousand years.

5-Aswan

In Egypt, Aswan is called “the city of the Nubians,” Its people are proud of their laid-back attitude and warm welcomes to visitors. The towns are always full of people, and the locals are happy to show visitors how they live so they quickly feel at home. Even though there aren’t as many ancient monuments to see as in Cairo or Luxor, many tourists enjoy a felucca (a small sailing boat) cruise down the Nile as the sun goes down. Even though there aren’t many important historical sites in this area, it’s getting increasingly popular. The trip to the Temple of Philae was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The other trips, on the other hand, were more like everyday activities. Close to both the city and Lake Nasser, you can visit places like the temple at Abu Simbel, which was built in honor of Ramses II.

6- Alexandria

Alexander the Great started the city in 331 BC. Since then, the economy has done well, and the town has grown considerably. You can get to the old Egyptian cities of Cairo and Giza. It is on a small peninsula that sticks out into Lake Mareotis and gives access to the Mediterranean. But precisely what do you suggest people do while they are in Alexandria? The Montaza Palace and the Kom el Shuqqafa catacombs are two well-known tourist spots in the city of Khom el Shuqqafa. Some of these are Pompey’s Pillar, the Qaitbay fortress, and the Qaitibay fortification. In addition to its many other features, the world-famous Alexandria Library has a planetarium, a science museum, a calligraphy museum, and an exhibition hall.

Since ancient times, the Nile has been one of the most exciting rivers in the world, and a cruise along its waters is a great way to relax and unwind. People who go on cruises between Aswan and Luxor that last 4 or 5 days can make their schedules fit their interests. These cruises usually come with many extras, and their plans may or may not include stops at temples and other popular tourist spots. You could also take a cruise from Cairo to Aswan that lasts 15 days. The price of your vacation covers everything, from food and drinks to land-based activities.

Even though most tourists who go to Cairo don’t even know it exists, it is still a popular place for Christians to visit. The Orthodox Christian property has a large temple holding as many as 20,000 people. So, the church has a good reason to say that it is the biggest in the whole area. Over the years, many cave churches have been found on Mokattam Mountain, often called “the City of Garbage.” Scenes from the Bible were carved into the stone of the two most significant temples and the granite walls around them.

10- Citadel of Saladin

Many people think that the Citadel of Saladin is the most well-known building in all of Egypt. In 1183 A.D., she could see Saladin’s Citadel from the top of the mountain. Even though it was built to protect the city from European Crusader armies, the Citadel of Saladin became Egypt’s political and administrative center in its first 700 years. Visit the Alabaster Mosque to see some of the most beautiful sights in Cairo. As the sun comes up in the east, you first see the silhouette of the city’s largest metro area. The Citadel is home to several museums about Mohammed Ali’s palace, the National Military Museum, and the Police Museum. A mosque can also be found inside the walls of the Citadel.

11- Discover Islamic Cairo
