Tourism in Cairo
El Cairo is one of the most densely populated cities in the world and can presume to be a place of pilgrimage since it is the city that is nearest to the pyramids of Giza, the last wonder of the original seven world wonders that still exists. Not only is El Cairo proud of its funeral architecture, but it is also a cultural centre and meeting point, a city filled with life, and a place that travellers should not fail to visit.
Due to the location of El Cairo in northern Africa, the city has a Mediterranean climate with extremely hot summers and little rainfall. The winters, however, are mild, making this the high season for tourists visiting the city and to the rest of the country.
Visiting El Cairo is entering the gateway to ancient Egyptian culture. The capital is a place that must be visited by anyone entering or leaving Egypt who is looking to take a break and enjoy the sun and the beach near Red Sea or enjoy adventure activities in the desert or taking one of the many cruises on the Nile between Aswan and Luxor.
However, El Cairo in itself is a delightful place to visit, and visitors can wander through the ancient part of the city and the streets of the Medina. The city centre has been declared a world heritage site, accompanying tourists on their journey through the old citadel of Saladino, the Copt quarter or the shopping district of Jan el-Jalili. El Cairo is also home to the most important museum of Egyptian art in the world, where one can explore the centuries of ancient cultures and history of what was once one of the most powerful nations in the world, in just a few square metres. Without forgetting, of course, that El Cairo is the main point of departure for excursions to destinations such as the pyramids of Giza, a sight that visitors will take a long time to forget. Not only does the ancient layout of the city give it the charm it has today, but El Cairo has known how to keep pace with modern times, and offering all kinds of facilities for the local populations and visitors, offering tourist services that range from the most standard and economical to the most luxurious offering. A city where one can have fun, relax and learn, a memorable city, like the country itself.
