Tour Itinerary

The Itinerary of Coptic Cairo Day Tour

The Hanging Church - Egypt Tours Portal

In the morning, we will pick you up to start your Coptic Cairo day tour by joining one of our exceptional tour guides who will be responsible for showing you some of the most fascinating Coptic sites all around Old Cairo and the hypnotic sites that you are going to visit are:

The Hanging Church - Cairo Tourist Attractions - Egypt Tours Portal

The Hanging Church

The hanging church is referred to as the Suspended Church and it got its name as "The Hanging Church" since it was established on the southern gate of the Roman Fortress. This is with no doubt a very unique church in Old Cairo and what is impressive about it is the roof which is in the shape of the ark of Noah. It has been the residence of the Coptic Patriarch from the 7th up to the 13 centuries.

After that, you will head to visit:

Ben Ezra Synagogue - Cairo Tourist Attractions - Egypt Tours Portal

Ben Ezra Synagogue

Ben Ezra synagogue dates back to the 9th century and it occupied the 4th century Christian Church’s shell. It is considered the site where prophet Jeremiah collected all of the Jews together after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed in the 6th century by Nebuchadnezzar. Abraham Ben Ezra restored in the 12th century and since then, it has become the place to know all about the secrets and mysteries of the life of the North African Jewish Community starting from the 11th century up to the thirteenth.

Then, we will transfer you to a wonderful local restaurant to enjoy your lunch meal and then you will continue the rest of your day tour to:

Abu Serga Church - Places to Visit in Cairo - Egypt Tours Portal

Abu Serga Church

Abu Serga church is believed to be built in the place which is believed to be the spot where the Holy family including Mary, Jesus Christ, and Joseph rested after finishing their journey into Egypt. That church has a great historical importance and so many patriarchs of the Coptic Church were erected there.

At the end of your day tour, you will head towards:

The Church of the Virgin Mary in Zeitoun - Egypt Tours Portal

Virgin Mary Church

Virgin Mary church is another Coptic church that is located in Haret Zuwela and it is actually the oldest one there which is believed to be built during the 10th century although some writing there shows that it dates to the 12th century at the consecration of the New Cairo Bishop. That church has been the seat of the Orthodox Pope of Alexandria from 1400 AD up to 1520 AD.

Finally, we will transfer you in one of our private A.C cars back to your hotel in Cairo/Giza to end your day tour to Cairo’s main Coptic sites.
