Overview Of The Port Of Suez

About Suez
Suez is a seaport city in north-eastern Egypt, located on the north coast of the Gulf of Suez, near the southern terminus of the Suez Canal.

Stroll along the Corniche to watch the ships lining up to transit the Suez Canal.

In Port Suez itself there are limited attractions - the pretty Hamza mosque, made of white stone is illuminated at night, the Catholic Covent of the Good Chapel Sisters dates back to the 19th century and the former home of the late president, Anwar Sadat.

Most visitors head on excursions to Giza or to other attractions in Cairo.

Note: As Egypt is a Muslim culture, it's wise to dress appropriately in more traditional areas and mosques. Women should cover their upper arms, cleavage, midriff and legs when visiting a mosque.

The archaeological site in Giza will give visitors an external view of the magnificent pyramids, Valley Temple and the Sphinx.

The Great Pyramid of Khufu, the first and largest pyramid built at Giza, is the only survivor of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Visitors can climb into the mausoleum through a corridor that descends into an unfinished chamber.

The Solar Boat Museum houses the Lebanese cedar boat intended to deliver King Khufu to the afterlife. It is thought to be the oldest boat in existence.

The eroding Sphinx, enclosed by fencing to protect it, has been a symbol of Egypt for thousands of years.

The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities contains more than 120,000 artifacts, most recovered from the nation's tombs and temples and includes King Tut's death mask, made of solid gold and jewels.

In the Royal Mummy Room, there are 11 of Egypt's pharaohs and queens, including Ramses II.

The Citadel, located on a spur of limestone above Cairo, was built in 1176. The fortress is home to several museums and monuments.

A fun option in Giza is to take a camel ride.

'The Sphinx' is a 50 minute sound and light show at the Pyramids, telling the story of how the ancient monuments were built, a good way to experience this is at night.

A Nile dinner cruise is another way to experience night-time Cairo.

Cairo's main public gathering place is Tahrir Square, where the Egyptian revolution unfolded in January 2011.

Coptic Cairo is a neighbourhood in Cairo and one of the oldest areas in the city, Sights include the Hanging Church, the Babylon Fortress and the Coptic Museum.

Seafood is widely available and popular on menus here. Roast pigeon, hummus, kebabs and bean dishes (foul) are also traditionally eaten.
