Cairo - Giza
Cairo at a Glance
Cairo - the modern capital of an ancient land-is magical, mystical, and  mysterious.  It is  itself  a juxtaposition of  the  anachronistic and the modern.  This  extraordinary  city,  the  largest  in Egypt, and   indeed  all   of  Africa,   simply  cannot   be  missed.  Islamic Cairo is  truly a  cultural and  historical  highlight of  the  city.  Its minarets   and   domes,  bazaars,   and   cobblestone   streets  are straight   from  A  Thousand  and  One  Arabian  Nights. But   let Islamic  Cairo  be  but  a  start  to  your  explorations  here. From Central   Cairo  with  its  fine  19th century   architecture   to   the Citadel   of   Saleh   el-Din   and  the   astonishing   dome  of   the Alabaster   Mosque  to  the  haunting  echoes  of  the  City of the Dead…Cairo beckons.   Cairo by night
Giza and Heliopolis
Sound & Light Show in Giza Giza and  Heliopolis  are  two  Cairo  suburbs  that  are  not  only geographically  opposed,  they  also  epitomize  two  extremes  of Egypt's  history. Giza,  on the West Bank of Nile, is famed for its ancient  monuments.  The  Sphinx,   dating  back to  2500 BC and the earliest-known  monumental sculpture, stands  guard over the Great  Pyramids  at  Giza  and their attendant Queens' pyramids, temples and  tombs. The Pyramids are the only one of  the Seven Wonders    of    the    Ancient    World    to    survive.    Even   the accompanying circus of camel and horse rides,  souvenir and soft drinks  vendors  and the  nightly  Sound  and  Light  show  do not diminish  their  splendor.  In  the  diagonally  opposite  suburb  of Heliopolis,  history  moves  on to the late 19th century and Baron Edouard   Empain,  the  entrepreneur  whose  vision  inspired  his garden  city  in  the  desert.  Built  in  a  mixture of European and Moorish  styles,  Heliopolis  attracted  wealthy  Egyptians  to  its leafy  grandeur.  Although  it  is  no  longer  separate from Cairo, visitors  still come  to enjoy its  stylish  architecture,  restaurants and nightlife.
