Itinerary

Tour Program

After your breakfast, we pick you up for one of our most beautiful cultural Cairo excursions, starting with a visit to one of the oldest districts in Cairo, El Matareya. Here is a “living” testimony of Christian history, the

Virgin Mary Tree


Here in El Matareya is the so-called “Virgin Mary Tree”, a plane tree under which the Virgin Mary rested according to a story while fleeing from Herod before she and her son continued their way to Palestine. To this day, the tree is considered one of the famous pilgrimage sites by Christians and every Christmas it attracts many pilgrims.

From here, we continue our Old Cairo tour by visiting the

Coptin Church El Zeitoun Cairo


El Zeitoun Cairo, a small copy of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, got its fame because the presence of the Virgin Mary in Egypt was mentioned for the first time at this location, hence the name St. Mary Cairo. It is a beautiful building in Old Cairo and worth a visit. Before our tour takes us to the oldest part of Cairo, we take a lunch break in a local restaurant and make our way to the

Hanging Church – Old Cairo


Here in the Masr el Adima, the multi-religious area of Cairo, as it's called in Egypt, is probably one of the most famous Coptic Churches.

The basilica-style "Hanging Church" (El Muallaqa) got its name from its position on the old city walls of Cairo. Every year the "Hanging Church" attracts visitors to Old Cairo. From here we start our way to

Abu Serga Church


the famous place where the Holy Family rested during their journey in Egypt. With its founding in the 5th century, the St Sergius and St Bacchus Church (also called Abu Serga Church) is one of the oldest churches in Egypt. Inside there is a cave in which the Holy Family sought protection during their escape.

After this informative Coptic Cairo - Old Cairo - Cairo Excursions, we will return to your accommodation in Cairo.

Important:


When visiting holy places, we advise you to wear covered clothing and to take a scarf with you.
