Travelers can soon return to Egypt’s greatest attractions


Egypt has been through some rough times lately but travelers who are planning their Eastern Mediterranean Vacation may be happy to know that the country’s minister of antiquities recently announced it will reopen tourist sites this weekend. These include all of the Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic and modern landmarks.

 

Vacationers can enjoy the beautiful and awe-inspiring structures that Egypt has to offer by heading to Giza, just 12 miles southwest of central Cairo. There, they can view some of the world’s oldest and most amazing monuments such as the Great Sphinx, the Great Pyramid of Giza and many temples.

Tourists can stay in the country’s capital and explore The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities which contains more than 120,000 items including 27 royal mummies. However, one of the most iconic artifacts is Tutankhamun’s golden mask, which is a must see on any excursion to the facility.

The museum is opened Wednesday and Thursday from 9 AM to 5 PM, Fridays from 9 AM to 8 PM and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM.
