Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic Cairo Trip From Sharm By Air
Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic Cairo Trip From Sharm By Air: Cairo was founded by the Arabs in the Seventh Century, but the ancient Egyptians had been living in this area for thousands of years. The capital of ancient Egypt during the Old Kingdom, and still hugely significant throughout the rest of the Pharaonic period, was Memphis “about 20 km south of the center of Cairo”. History and religion are closely related in this country, and the Day Touring to Islamic and Coptic Cairo demonstrates this throughout history. Old Cairo “Coptic Cairo” is a part of Cairo, Egypt, that contains the remnants of those cities which were capitals before Cairo, such as Fustat, as well as some other elements from the city’s varied history. For example, it encompasses Coptic Cairo and its many old churches and ruins of Roman fortifications. Modern tourists visit locations such as the Coptic Museum, the Babylon Fortress, the Hanging Church and other Coptic churches, the Ben Ezra Synagogue and the Mosque of ‘Amr Ibn al-’as. Fort Babylon is a Roman fortress around which many of the Egyptian Christians’ oldest churches were built.
Islamic Cairo is a part of central Cairo noted for its historically important mosques and other Islamic monuments. It is overlooked by the Cairo Citadel.
