Itinerary

In the afternoon, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Cairo. Accompanied by guide, you will be taken to the Citadel of Salah El Din. It was built by Salah El Din El Ayoubi in 1183 AD in the medieval castle style. The citadel comprises a number of important monuments including the Mosque of Soliman Pasha, the 90 metre deep Joseph’s well, the Alabaster Mosque of Mohammed Ali. The walls of the mosque are coated with alabaster and had gild-decorated crowns.

Further on, proceed to the Khan El Kahili Bazaar and El Sagha (jewellery shops).

It is one of the earliest and greatest markets in the Middle East. Built in the 14th century, it has many stores exhibiting a wonderful collection of jewellery, wooden artefacts embossed with pearls, leather ware, embroidered dresses and a range of impressive souvenirs.

After exploring the market, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Cairo.
