  • Travelers learn about history in majestic Cairo

    2010-04-30

    Despite its position as one of the oldest settled landmasses on the planet, Africa remains largely unexplored by American tourists. Travelers seeking an excellent entry point into the wondrous continent may want to venture to Egypt and visit the storied capital city of Cairo for an adventure through history.

    Nicknamed "the city of a thousand minarets" due to its connection to traditional Islamic architecture, Cairo is the largest city on the continent and the center of the region's cultural, political and economic life. The city is split into several regions including traditional and historical spots in Old Cairo and the hip urban area of Garden City.

    Cairo boasts structures and artifacts from several periods throughout history - from the medieval architecture of the Islamic sector to the more classic African monument of Cairo Tower.

    Located only a short drive out of town are several of ancient Egypt's monuments including the Great Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza. These historical sites date back more than 4,000 years and are a true one-of-a-kind sight to behold.
