Detailed Itinerary

Cairo: Citadel, Coptic & Islamic Old Cairo Tours

The Citadel, Coptic, and Islamic Old Cairo is an 8-hour excursion that brings you to three major sites in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Start your day with a hotel pick-up from Cairo or Giza and a drive up to Saladin Citadel, built in the year 1176 by Sultan Salah Ed-Din Ayyubi, better known as Saladin. The Coptic Church, known as St. Sergius & Bacchus Church, is one of the oldest houses of worship in Cairo. It was designed during the Roman Era and rebuilt under Coptic rule beginning in 922 AD 302. It has two bell towers with balconies where pigeons nest – hence its nickname "The Hanging Church." While inside, the church is covered with glittering mosaics and paintings on its walls that adorn it intricately, which makes it a popular place for tourists to visit while they're there visiting other sites too.
