It houses over 120,000 items, with a representative amount on display. Located in a building built in 1901, it is the largest museum in Africa. Among its masterpieces are Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s treasure, including its iconic gold burial mask, widely considered one of the best-known works of art in the world and a prominent symbol of ancient Egypt.

Afternoon: visit Old Cairo’s citadel. Salah El Din built this medieval Islamic fort. Later Egyptian rulers expanded it. For 700 years (13th-19th centuries), it was Egypt’s government seat and rulers’ home. It stands on a Mokattam hill promontory near Cairo’s center. It overlooks and dominates the city skyline.

When it was constructed it was among the most impressive and ambitious military fortification projects of its time.
