This Journey will take you to visit one of the world’s most important collections of ancient artefacts, the Egyptian Museum takes pride of place in Downtown Cairo, on the north side of Midan Tahrir. Inside the great domed, oddly pinkish building, the glittering treasures of Tutankhamun and other great pharaohs lie alongside the grave goods, mummies, jewellery, eating bowls and toys of Egyptians whose names are lost to history.
In the afternoon, your journey will continue to explore the hidden gems of Islamic Cairo, where you will learn more about Islam as a religion & culture.
End your journey with a stroll through the skinny lanes of Khan El Khalili which are basically a medieval-style mall.
