The Hundred Mile Horizon


Situated on the River Nile, Cairo is famous for its own history – preserved in the fabulous medieval Islamic city and in Old Cairo – and for the ancient, Pharaonic history of the country it represents.

No trip to Cairo would be complete, for example, without a visit to the Giza Pyramids, to nearby Saqqara, or to the Egyptian Museum in the center of town. Though firmly attached to the past, Cairo is also home to a vibrant modern society.
