Old Cairo And Citadel

Your adventure begins in Old Cairo, also known as Christian Coptic Cairo, a place of profound spiritual significance. It was here that the Holy Family sought refuge, their presence still palpably felt. Despite their brief stay, the Governor of Fustat, enraged by the falling of idols at Jesus’ approach, sought to kill the Child. They found sanctuary in a cave, above which the Church of Abu Serga (St Sergius) was later built.
This area, including the entire Fort of Babylon, is a revered pilgrimage destination for not only Egyptians but Christians worldwide. A sense of piety and devotion permeates the district.

Here, you’ll have the opportunity to step inside the Church of Abu-Sergah and St. Barbara, the Hanging Church, and the ancient Ben Ezra Synagogue. After exploring these sacred sites, you’ll be treated to a delicious lunch.

Your journey continues to The Castel of Cairo, home to the city’s most famous mosque - Mohamed Ali’s Alabaster Mosque.

Later you will be transferred Back to your hotel.
