How To Get To Cairo

20 kilometres from the city itself is the international airport where all Cairo flights land. The car hire from Cairo Airport will allow you to make the trip to your accommodation and then around the city and the nearby attractions, although you can also take a taxi or bus if you do not want to keep a vehicle with you for your entire holiday to Cairo.

What To Do In Cairo

Egypt is famed for its pyramids and you would be insane to miss a visit to Giza to see these incredible ancient structures that point impossibly into the sky in a way that has withstood the ravages of time for over 4000 years. The deeply embedded history of the city is visible everywhere and a comprehensive collection of artefacts can be found in the main museum. Many people choose to spend a good deal of time on holiday in Cairo sitting in a cafe or restaurant observing the whirlwind of human activity passing by.

Where To Stay In Cairo

Whilst the streets are packed, there are pools of tranquillity to be found in the various luxury hotels which can keep you cocooned and cushioned during holidays to Cairo. Many mix classic exterior design with updated, modern interiors to give you the best of both worlds, whilst those seeking cheap holidays in Cairo will be well met by the more budget accommodation options in and around the city.
