Full Description

Cairo Citadel excursion from Sharm el Sheikh is a day tour to Cairo by air to visit citadel of Saladdin and Coptic Cairo quarters. This excursion to Medieval Cairo will open the curtain of life within the walls of the ancient fortress, introduce you to the palaces of the rulers of Egypt and help you plunge into the world of the ancient East.

One day air excursion from Sharm el Sheikh to Cairo's famous citadel, a very unique military structure, is a perfect option to discover Medieval Cairo and its attractions. There are several significant structures hidden behind the walls of the Citadel. Beside the world-famous alabaster mosque of Mohammed Ali we find there at least 3 palaces and 2 very interesting museums, plus ancient water-wheel and an aqueduct.

During our tour to the Citadel we will visit two mosques, one palace, the Military Museum and Police Museum, discover the ruins of Ablaq palace and wander withing the ancient walls. Plus the museum of royal carriages can be visited (requires separated ticket)!

After lunch in a local restaurant let's walk through the Coptic Quarter of old Cairo, see the ancient fortress of Babylon, visit some Coptic churches and even a Synagogue, one of the oldest synagogues of Egypt is situated in this quarter. At the end of our tour, transfer to Cairo airport to catch your flight back to Sharm el Sheikh.
