The North Egypt/Cairo region
The apartment is located in Giza, a suburb of Cairo. Giza is famous for the Pyramids and Sphinx but there are a multitude of other things to see and do in the wonderful city of Cairo such as visit the bustling Khan El-Khalili Market, the Citadel, Mosques such as the Mohammed Ali and Al Ahzar, and Coptic Cairo. El Azhar Park, which is a beautifully landscaped park,a favourite with tourists, is also nearby. You will literally be spoiled for choice!
Annual High / Low Daytime Temperatures in Cairo: 34°C / 18°C (93°F / 64°F)
Average Daily January Temperature in Cairo : 18ºC / 64ºF
Average Daily June Temperature in Cairo: 34ºC / 93ºF
You can relax in Giza yet still have easy access to the main attractions, such as the Pyramids and Sphinx. The Step Pyramids at Sakkara & Memphis are just a short car ride away. A driver is available for tours in a modern air conditioned car or, if you would prefer to experience the public transport system, there is both a Metro station, linking many other areas of this great city, and a mainline station to take you further afield. (http://www.johomaps.com/af/egypt/cairo/cairometro_bil.html).
You can visit the Egyptian Museum in Central Cairo where many Pharonic artefacts are on show. The new Cairo Museum, due to open in 2013, is within 5 minutes walking distance of the apartment. The Pharonic Village is a wonderful place to visit, especially for children. The Citadel, which housed Egyptian rulers for some 700 years is also a spectacular sight.
You cannot visit Cairo without a trip to the famous 14th century Khan El-Khalili Bazaar. Brush up on your haggling skills and get a real bargain or why not experience a trip on the River Nile in a felucca. So romantic!
The apartment is also not too far from the churches of Old Cairo (Coptic Cairo). and the Pharonic Village.
If you plan to travel further afield, Fayoum Oasis, which is of great cultural interest being the area where the Mummy Paintings were first discovered, is within close proximity to Giza being just 40 minutes by car.
Alexandria, an ancient and enigmatic city is a 3 hour drive or just over 2 hours by express train from Ramsis Railway Station. Don't forget to sample the fish there!! There is so much to see and do in Cairo itself however, you may just not find the time!
Not far from the apartment are pharmacies, ATM/Banks restaurants, Giza Train Station, Giza Zoo and Dandy Mall, a large shopping centre.
