Egypt is a country that has been visited by travellers for ten thousand years. It is well-known for incredible sights and one of a kind culture. With the vast deserts, rugged rocky outcrops and the shores of the Nile and Red Sea ready for you to explore, your hire car will give you the freedom to tour this great land with ease and comfort, and see all the sights that interest you.
The largest city in the country is Cairo. This is a great place to start your Egyptian car hire adventure. You can pick up your hire car at the airport, or downtown, and head off to see the sights. While in Cairo, visit the Egyptian Museum, where thousands of artefacts, including the mask and sarcophagus of Tutankhamun, are displayed. Drive your rental car to the western edge of the city, and where you can see the Pyramids of Giza, as well as the Sphinx. When you’re in the area, this something you can’t miss out on.
Drive northwest for the city of Alexandria if you want to get away from busy Cairo. This city is located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and for most Egyptians, Alexandria is the place to go for a long weekend away. Fantastic museums and cultural hotspots are found throughout the city, and there are loads of activities to take part in on the water. While in Alexandria, visit the Citadel of Qaitbay, found on the coastline, at the site where the world-famous Alexandria Lighthouse once stood. The Citadel is a fort built in the 15th century and a magnificent sight indeed.
Drive south of from Alexandria and Cairo and visit the city of Luxor, home to many of Egypt's famous attractions. Head a little west of Luxor, and check out the Valley of the Kings. Once the burial place for Egyptian royalty, the valley has many tombs into which visitors can go and see the amazing hieroglyphics and chambers carved into the hills. Also near Luxor are the Tombs of the Nobles, another site featuring burial places of powerful individuals during ancient times.
