Have you ever wondered how life was thousands of years ago? This question and other similar thoughts inspired creators to accompany you for a short while to the past, by introducing the sound and light show. It is a magnificent show that brings creativity to life the rule of ancient Egyptians. The artists skillfully created a show to present images of all historical eras. For an hour, you enjoy the sound and light show near the pyramids and the Sphinx.The history is re-told by the Sphinx, telling you the most ancient secrets of the world.

There you will find the pyramid of Khufu, the Immortal and Sky Grabber, close to its some alters, where the wood-made boats of Khufu are placed, which KING Khufu would use to sail on his journey to immortality. Also, you will find the pyramid built by Khufu’s son Khafre, who made his own smaller and shorter than his father's pyramid; we can see Khafre' s face, engraved on a sheet of green diorite stone, so lively as if the artist just finished it. Then, last but not least the pyramid of Menkaure, who was like his father modest and decent enough to make his pyramid smaller than the other two.

In one hour, the show would narrate the history of those great kings, their secrets, legends and secrets of ancient history.

Cairo Citadel and Mohamed Ali Mosque

The Cairo Citadel is a medieval Islamic fortification located on Mokattam Hill in the centre of Cairo. It is believed to have been constructed in the early 12th century. The Mosque of Muhammad Ali in the centre of the Citadel is a grandiose Ottoman structure, constructed during early 19th century. This major landmark can be seen from far away, with large domes and minarets defining Cairo’s skyline. The architecture has a striking resemblance to the one in Istanbul, as it was built by the same model as Yeni Mosque in Istanbul. The external facade style was largely borrowed from Ottoman period, ironically making it the least Egyptian amongst other monuments. The intricate interior decoration inside the domes and prayer halls is awe inspiring with heavily gilded wooden columns, ceilings and walls. A visit to the citadel gives you an opportunity to witness panoramic view of the dusty Cairo from the top.

Egyptian Museum visit

Start your tour at the Egyptian Museum. Designed by the French architect Marcel Dourgnon, the museum is located in a handsome neo-classical building on Tahrir Square. Its collection ranging from the pre-dynastic era, to the Pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods. Undoubted highlights are the collection of rare treasures, and the Mummies Room, which you can enter for a small extra charge.

The museum house over 250,000 (more than 120,000 items on display) genuine artifacts, including the treasures of the most famous Egyptian pharaoh, Tutankhamen. The gold and jewelry on display was enclosed in his tomb for over 3,500 years before it was discovered in the 1920s during excavations.

Khan El Khalili Bazaar

No trip to Cairo is complete without a visit to the city's notorious Khan El Khalili bazaar located in the Islamic section of Old Cairo. This busy and colorful open-air bazaar is filled with unique and exotic items from spices and perfumes to jewelry and souvenirs. Khan el-Khalili is a major souk in the historic center. Master the art of bargaining for great prices on fine brassware, copper, perfumes, leather, silver, gold, and antiques.
