Itinerary

In the morning, a tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel in a private, air-conditioned car to start your wonderful tour visit as follows...

Salah El-Din Citadel

Salah El-Din Citadel and the Alabaster Mosque of Mohammed Ali, built by the Turkish architect Yousif Boushnaq, were the center of Egypt for more than 700 years.

Hanging Church

The Hanging Church is the most famous in the Coptic Quarter. It is known as the Hanging Church because it is built on one of the doors of the Roman castle, and the wooden dome of the Church is in the form of Noah's Ark, as described in the Old Testament.

Abu Serja Church

It is the oldest Church in Egypt. It was built in the 5th century over the cave, where it is believed that the Holy Family took refuge for several days. It is dedicated to Saints Sergius and Bacchus, whose remains are kept in this Church.

St. Barbara's Church

It is a church of great historical importance, originally dedicated to Saint Cyrus and Saint John. From the 13th century onwards, it was dedicated to Saint Barbara as her remains came to this Church. It houses some of the oldest and rarest icons of Coptic art.

Ben Ezra Synagogue

It was initially a church, but in the ninth century, it was sold to Abraham Ben Ezra, who gave it his name, for the money needed to pay the high taxes demanded by the Roman government.

Amr Ibn Al-Aas Mosque

Amr Ibn Al-Aas Mosque is the oldest mosque in the African continent. Its origins go back to the year 642 when the territory of Cairo occupied Fustat, the capital of Egypt that had recently been established at that time.
