What to visit in Egypt?
The city of Egypt is mostly characterized by extensive deserts in which it is only possible to find winds and sands, but it is also possible to find small eco-regions, such as the Mediterranean part, the savanna part of the Nile River, the desert next to the Red Sea and the Sahara desert. The variety of zones that can be defined as independent ecological systems allows you to enjoy different levels of landscapes of traditional Egypt, only in the sand around the pyramids.
It is the capital of Egypt and the main city of the country, has more than 16 million inhabitants and is the largest city in Africa and the Middle East, full of history and traditions, its main attractions are in the museums and their monuments. The city of Cairo is also known as the “City of a Thousand Minarets“. Among its places to know, we can highlight the district of Copto, where monumental churches such as Abu Serga, as well as the Amir mosque, the mosques of Al Azhar and Al Hussein, meet. Among the museums, you should visit the Museum of Islamic Art and the Khan el Khalili bazaar, places where you can learn about the history of medieval Egyptian times. On the hills, you can find the ancient citadel of Saladito, along with the mosque of Mohamed Ali, also known as the Alabaster Mosque.
It is located about 730 kilometers from the city of Cairo, formerly known as the city of Thebes, it is the second most important in Egypt. In the Homeric era, it was known as “The City of One Hundred Gates“. The city borders on both opposite banks of the Nile River, so its natural beauty is prodigious, among the most recommended places to take advantage of this city is its architectural monuments, such as the Temple of Luxor and the Temple of Karnak. To the west of the city, you can visit the famous temples of Ramses, along with the valleys of the ancient Kings and Queens. If you visit Alexandria, an unmissable place in the route should be the Column of Pompey, a historical place and famous for believing that the Library of Alexandria was under its columns.
Sharm el-Sheikh began as a small fishing village, and then became an Egyptian naval base, and today lives off tourism. If we had to compare Sharm el-Sheikh with something closer, it would be something similar to Ibiza. It is a place that was born by and for tourism, where the people who work there are mostly Europeans.
The liveliest area of the city is Naama Bay, where the nightlife is spectacular. Restaurants, terraces, shows and even a nightclub Pacha for the most partying (it must be said that the club is huge and really beautiful). Other activities that can be done in Sharm el-Sheikh are quad tours through the desert, kart racing, camel rides and much more.
