Day trip from Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo

Sharm El Sheikh is the perfect resort to base yourself in if you want to get the best of everything Egypt has to offer. Beautiful beaches, excellent diving and great entertainment is right on your doorstep. But from here, you can also make the journey to the country's capital city of Cairo and learn everything there is to know about the rich and entrancing history of the nation.

On a day trip to Cairo it's possible to cross a number of things off any person's bucket list: the big one, of course, being the Great Pyramid of Giza. Marvel at one of the seven ancient wonders of the world and try to fathom just how exactly they managed to build such a phenomenon.

From there, take a wander over to the remarkable Sphinx where you will be able to take the obligatory selfie.

A trip to Cairo wouldn't be complete without visiting the world famous Egyptian Museum. This incredible museum houses the largest collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts in the world. There are over 120,000 items on display, so make sure you allow plenty of time to make the very most of it. Perhaps the most remarkable section within the museum is the fascinating Tutankhamun collection, featuring material from the intact tomb of the king.
