BEYOND WORDS Experience Islamic Cairo, culture, Mosques and architects

Explore Islamic Cairo, also known as Medieval Cairo, founded in 969 by the Fatimid caliphs who subsequently turned it into a royal enclosure, not far from Futstat, which had by then been adopted as the country's economic and administrative capital. It served as Egypt's capital from 750 to 868. During the years that followed, the area grew to become the regional center for Islam and as a result, several mosques and other Islamic monuments were constructed. It is primarily due to this that the area came to be known as Islamic Cairo. Whatever you do, don't expect Islamic Cairo to be anything like modern day downtown Cairo. The two areas are quite literally worlds apart, but in a way which makes it even more necessary to explore this ancient district.

Summary

Incredible Experience I have recently completed a 10 day tour of Egypt, Cairo and a Nile Cruise with my 2 sisters and a friend (4 women) and it was mind blowing. Our guide in Cairo, Ahmed was knowledgeable, kind and accommodating and allowed us to tweak some of our tour sites as we wanted to shop a little, maybe a lot! The Nile cruise ship was fantastic, the staff could not do enough for us, the cabins spacious and comfortable and our guide was fun, patient, knowledgeable, honest and intuitive. Once again we felt safe and well taken care of the entire trip. Highly recommend.

More about this tour

From the island of Korčula in the northwest to the dreamy plains of Konavle in the southeast, this is a region to be savoured by beach seekers, wine lovers and history buffs alike.

Yet one location understandably eclipses any discussion of Southern Dalmatia: the remarkable old town of Dubrovnik. Ringed by mighty defensive walls that dip their feet in the cerulean sea, the city encapsulates the very essence of a medieval Mediterranean fantasy. Dubrovnik is simply unique; its beauty is bewitching, its setting sublime. Thousands of visitors walk along its marble streets every day, gazing, gasping and happily snapping away.

When Dubrovnik's tourist scrum threatens to overwhelm, a reinvigorating balm is but a quick boat or bus ride away. Refresh yourself on the shady paths of Trsteno Arboretum or, if that doesn't do the trick, the divine wine and oysters of the sparsely populated Pelješac Peninsula surely will.
