Description

During this week you can admire the best places and tourist sights in Egypt. Departing from Cairo, the capital city of the country, important historic site and most populated city of Africa, you'll visit the renowned maritime resort of Marsa Matruh, located on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It is rich in Muslim and Christian architectural examples, then you'll get away from the chaotic towns and continue toward the inland, where you'll discover the immensity of the desert, characterized by high sand hills which reflect the warm colours of the sun with their grains and small and suggestive oases. Here it is possible to take a break to refresh, rest and discover the secrets of the life here. During a night in the desert there is nothing better than watching the endless stars in the sky and losing in thoughts while breathing in the calm and peaceful atmosphere.
