Are you dreaming of an adventurous holiday in warm and sunny Egypt? Book your flight from London to Cairo now and get ready for a real cultural immersion.
Cairo, with its more than 10 million inhabitants, is the most important city in Egypt and an important economic and cultural center for the entire region of Northern Africa. Take time to visit the Al Azhar Mosque, the Citadel and the Muhhamad Ali Mosque, but also to just walk around the narrow streets and enjoy the amazing hospitality of the local people.
Enjoy dinner in the traditional Egyptian taverns and discover the tasteful local food. One dish you should definitely try is the country's national dish Fuul, which is made from mashed fava beans and traditional spices and served in pitta bread.
Make sure to plan your trip carefully, as the busy city life can be quite overwhelming. It might even be a good idea to hire a local guide to go beyond the standard tourist program and to really get to know the city.
Cairo is the starting point of touristic tours to the pyramids of Giza and for the Nile cruises. Book your SWISS flight from London to Cairo now and enjoy an unforgettable holiday.
