The Itinerary of Day Trip to Islamic Cairo
We will pick you up from your hotel in Cairo to join our professional tour guide in a private air-conditioned vehicle to visit the best historical of Islamic Cairo highlights including:
Salah El-Din Citadel is one of the most prestigious military castles constructed in the Middle Ages whose location is strategic since it controls the cities of Cairo and Al Fustat that's why the citadel provides defensive importance. The Citadel was erected during the 12th century to defend Cairo against the Crusaders and it was used as the seat of the government during the ruling periods of Ayyubids, Mamluk, and Ottomans.
Mohamed Ali Mosque proudly stands as the highest point inside Cairo Citadel which was established by Mohammed Ali Pasha in 1830 AD and its erection continued till his death in 1848 AD. The exterior design was taken from the design of the Sultan Ahmad Mosque in Istanbul and the mosque acts as one of the most significant Islamic attractions in Cairo.
Lunch will be offered at a local restaurant then move to visit:
Sultan Hassan Madrassa and Mosque acts as one of the rarest pieces of the early Mamluk architecture period which were founded between 1356 AD and 1363 AD. The mosque was built out of giant blocks of stone which became the symbol of the culmination of all the architectural projects during the reign of the Mamluks.
Another impressive Islamic monument in Cairo is the Al Refaie Mosque which was founded by Khoshiar Hanim, the mother of Khedive Ismail. The process of construction had begun in 1869 AD and was completed by 1911 AD. However, the works of its erection stopped for around 25 years from 1880 to 1905 AD. The mosque served as the burial tombs of Mohamed Ali's family members.
Ibn Tulun Mosque is the oldest and largest mosque in Cairo which was established between 876 and 879 AD by Ahmed Ibn Tulun who was commissioned by the Abbasid Caliph to be the governor of Al Fustat. The interior design of the mosque was derived from the Abbasid architectural style and the mosque stands wonderfully decorated arches with a very large courtyard.
The epic street of Al Muizz is able to provide a magical journey across all the living miracles of Cairo. It is a very attractive cultural marvel that showcases the golden street of Cairo which came into existence in the 10th century AD in the Fatimid period. Muizz transformed into a golden labyrinth that has the most incredible monuments, artifacts, and houses.
Khan El Khalili Bazaar is an ancient renowned souk located in the center of Cairo which was founded as a large center of trade during the reign of Mamluk. The bazaar dates back to the 14th century which became full of cafes and restaurants including El Fishawy, the oldest café in the city.
