Excursion: BEST OF CAIRO OVERNIGHT
We'll take a bus ride from Alexandra to the legendary Al Qahira, internationally known as the teeming metropolis of Cairo. Highlights for today include the Citadel of Saladin, a drive through the ‘City of the Dead’, the Alabaster Mosque of Mohamed Ali and Liberty Square where the National Archaeological Museum is situated. Then onto the hotel for check-in, lunch and a short siesta. Next a visit to the Papyrus institute and to end the night a dinner cruise on the River Nile.
