Egypt Shore Excursion


 Egypt Shore Excursion It’s your opportunity to find out the greatness of Egypt’s ancient civilization. In your special shore excursion to Cairo and Alexandria, having a stopover in Egypt during your Overseas Cruise ship journey, we will take you in a quick trip to visit Cairo with its unbelievable and mighty great pyramids & Sphinx then visit the treasures of our Pharaonic grandpas at the Egyptian museum.
The history of Cairo dates back to the Fatimid period, as it was built in the 10th Century AD. However, the land composing the present-day city was the original site of national capitals whose remnants remain visible in parts of Old Cairo. Cairo is also associated with Ancient Egypt due to its proximity to the ancient cities of Giza, Sakkara and Memphis.
When we decide to talk about Cairo, we have to mention the great pyramids of Giza, where our grandfathers founded such a unique kind of Architecture that surprised the ancient world and the modern as well. They used only the huge stones blocks to erect their marvelous tombs in that triangular shape.
Let us take you in such an awe-inspiring tour to one of the most important museums in the world housing the unique collection of our treasures including those of Tut Ankh Amun, the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities. This museum is containing many of the master pieces of the ancient Egyptian art. If you decided to go inside the rooms of this stunning museum you will be so excited by what you will discover there! Gold and silver objects, statues & statuettes, coffins and small chapels, and more of antiquities date back to the Pharaonic reign, where our ancestors lived, ruled and worshipped for a while.
Keep it secret, we will take you in such a wonderful tour to the Coptic part of our city, where the oriental lifestyle of Cairo is clearly appearing. Old houses in a wonderful design, very clean streets, oriental shops/cafes are surrounding the whole area, ancient churches standing close to the mosques, Bazaars shows the gold and silver products, all of that and more is available in Coptic Cairo.
