What is Expected to See during the Cairo Alexandria Excursion Hurghada?
The Egyptian Museum is the oldest archaeological museum in Egypt and the Middle East. It exhibits an extensive collection passing from the Predynastic Period to the Greco-Roman period. In addition, this repository houses the most comprehensive collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world. This fantastic collection traces 5,000 years of Egyptian history.
Giza Pyramid Complex
The Giza Pyramid Complex is the most popular tourist attraction in Egypt. Also, we call it the Giza Necropolis. This Complex is an Ancient Egyptian site located on the Giza Plateau. Widely known, it includes the Great Pyramid of Giza, its associated networks, and the Sphinx of Giza. The ancient Egyptians built these massive constructions during the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt. Additionally, the Giza Complex includes several cemeteries and the remains of a workers’ settlement on its territory.
Pyramid of Khufu
The Pyramid of Khufu stands at a towering height of 138.5 metres. Located in the Giza pyramid complex, this oldest and largest Pyramid has astounded people through the centuries. This marvel constitutes a part of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world.
Pyramid of Khafre
The Pyramid Of Khafre stands at 448ft with a base length of 706ft. These measurements make the Pyramid the second-tallest and second-largest of the Giza Pyramid complex. This historical monument is also known as the Pyramid of Chephren. It houses the tomb of the Fourth Dynasty Pharaoh Khafre, who ruled between 2558-2532 BC.
Menkaure is the third Pyramid in the Giza Pyramid complex situated in Greater Cairo, Egypt. Smallest of the three; this beautiful structure rises to 66 metres (218 feet). Menkaure Pyramid houses some of the most stunning sculptures from Ancient Egyptian history despite being short.
The Great Sphinx is one of the most significant sculptures in the world. It shows a reclined lion’s body and a human head at nearly 66 feet. A royal headdress adorns the Sphinx’s human head. The length of this magnificent statue is around 240 feet.
The king’s palace stands in Alexandria. And King Farouk continuously filled it with new and unusual buildings. As Strabo said in “Geography”: “Each king, out of his love for pomp, usually added some decoration to all monuments.” A wall surrounding this chic royal district surrounded the fashionable neighbourhood like a fortress; the royal guard also guarded it. The guard chambers laid not far from the Montaza palace itself.
Library of Alexandria
The Library of Alexandria is one of the ancient world’s largest and most important libraries. It was part of the Alexandria Muséion Institute in Alexandria, Egypt. The idea of establishment belongs to Demetrius of Phalerum. Subsequently, Ptolemy I, Soter, laid down the plans for this monumental project. At the same time, the son of Caesar Ptolemy II completed the building.
By then, the library had rapidly accumulated many papyrus scrolls. Indeed, the large amount of finance the Ptolemaic kings gave enhanced this process. Calculating an exact figure for the number of scrolls stored at this place is challenging. However, we can assume the approximate number of scrolls varied from 40,000 to 400,000 during the heyday.
The Egyptians completed the construction of the Fortress in 1477. The founder of this fort was Sultan Abu Al-Nasr Sayf ad-Din Al-Ashraf Qaitbay. Historians believe Qaitbay had built this Fortress on the Alexandria Lighthouse – one of the World’s Seven Wonders. These historians affirm that the Alexandria Lighthouse exited on the same site. They used the remaining parts of the lighthouse itself to build this citadel.
Abu El Abbas Mosque
Abu El Abbas Mosque is very popular and famous in Egypt, in Alexandria. The Egyptians dedicated this mosque to the holy Sufi Abul-Abbas al-Mursi from Spain, who lived in the 13th century. In his last years, he moved to live in Alexandria.
The full name of this Sufi is Shahab ad-Din Abu-l-Abbas Ahmad ibn Umar ibn Muhammad Al-Ansari Al-Mursi. Revered Abu El Abbas is one of four religious men who enjoyed high respect and wide fame in Egypt. His writings were rife and were of considerable importance to all the people in Egypt. Mursi has become a household name in the country thanks to his work and popularity.
Daniel Radcliffe –
This was another big itinerary that we had included in our trip. The best part was this would be a combination of getting to look at three cities namely Cairo, Giza, and Alexandria. This trip will need to have at least two days in hand so that you can enjoy it to the fullest. This excursion will be done in an AC bus and we will be picked up from our resort in Hurghada at 8 AM. First, we will be traveling to Giza to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World! The famous Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Post that we will have a wonderful lunch at a local restaurant offering local cuisine. Post the lunch we will be heading for a boat picnic across the Nile. At the Pyramids, we did camel rides! The very first in my life. That in itself was an amazing experience! Our guide from Landious Travels was not only great, but he was an excellent photographer as well. That we discovered after coming to Giza. He has taken some such amazing photographs those which will remain forever etched in my memories. We enjoyed posing in front of the lenses. In this manner, he became more like a family than a guide. Another thing that I feel I should mention here is the way he guided us as not to pay heed to any other agents available there while entering the Pyramids. I was a bit skeptical as to the safety whether we should enter or not, but the guide reassured us on the same. That made us feel entirely at ease with the trip. From here we visited the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. What a collection was laid bare in front of us! It was a trip down history’s memory lane. Our next stop was at the Papyrus factory where all tourists come to collect souvenirs to take back home. Once that was done, we were dropped back at our hotel. On the second day, we traveled to Alexandria. Alexandria was the city of Alexander, Cleopatra, and Antony. It was as if history was unfolding in front of us. Our guide gave us a full briefing about the history of Alexandria en route on the bus. He was pretty skillful in his delivery and had a thorough knowledge of the same. Other than this, we went on a tour of the Catacombs, The Pillar of Pompey, The Lighthouse of Alexandria, and the Fort of Qayetbay as well. Next, we visited the library of Alexandria natively known as the ” Bibliotheca Alexandria”. The uniqueness of this library was that it housed 500 000 scrolls showcasing the science, literature, and religions of ancient Egypt. Once we are done with this tour we are very hungry and are taken to have a yummy fish lunch. And after walking so much, I must say we did have a sumptuous lunch which was locally made and served hot immediately we arrived at the restaurant. Post lunch we visited the Roman Amphitheatre and the famous mosque of the city which ended our hectic tour for the day. A well-planned trip definitely should be booked.
