Relax after your flight in the stunning rooftop pool of your hotel.
3 A great place to start any visit to Egypt, the Egyptian Museum is bursting with ancient artifacts which help you begin to understand the vast and fascinating history of this nation. From the serenity of the museum to the cacophony of Cairo’s streets, where I recommend you do a walking tour of the Old Coptic City. To avoid the crowds try to get to the museum early and start your visit as far away from the entrance doors as possible.
