    Travelling in Egypt with a Car Hire

    Being one of the biggest cities in both Africa and the Middle East, you can spend an entire life discovering the city. The city has literally something that suits everybody. Whether you’re into nature, culture or cuisine, Cairo has it all.

    Drive your car hire down to Khan al-Khalili, a large island located on the Nile to admire the Cairo Tower. At over 180m tall, the tower offers amazing views of the city, and is a great way to view the sites around you and get a feeling for just how large the city is.

    Go over the bridge to the famous Tahrir Square. The Egyptian Museum is located at the square and is home to some of the greatest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the world. The museum is easily large enough to spend a whole day exploring the displays, and the most prized item is definitely the mask of King Tutankhamun's mummy, an important piece indeed.

    The most well-known attraction in Cairo is the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, the only surviving structures from the original 7 Wonders of the World. To visit the pyramids, drive your car hire southwest of the central Cairo, where you will find the site at the edge of the city.

    To learn a little about the history of Egypt and to see some of the nation's ancient treasures, jump in your car hire and drive over to the Egyptian Museum, which is located a few blocks east of the river. The museum houses an amazing collection of artifacts, including Tutankhamun's death mask as well as many of his treasures. The museum's collection is set out in chronological order and offers a glimpse into life in the area thousands of years ago.

    A short drive from the museum with your vehicle, you can visit Cairo Citadel, another famous historic part of the city. Originally built in the 12th century, although added to and renovated over the years, the citadel is a massive fortification containing several mosques and museums, as well as providing stunning views over the city. For a unique look into local life, drive your car hire down to Khan Ali-Kalili, the largest open air market in Egypt. Virtually unchanged for thousands of years, the markets are the ideal place to pick up some souvenirs or local arts and crafts at a great price. As with most markets in Egypt, don't forget to bargain!
