The Museum of Civilization has a great gallery for Royal Mummies. Then you will move to the Citadel of Salah Al-Din a medieval Islamic-era fortification in Cairo. It was the seat of government in Egypt and the residence of its rulers for nearly 700 years from the 13th to the 19th centuries. Its location on a promontory of the Mokattam hills near the center of Cairo commands a strategic position overlooking the city. Later you will go to Coptic Cairo also called old Cairo where you will see the remains of the Roman fortress of Babylon (2nd century A.D), visit the hanging church, church of Abu Serga with Holy Crypt where the Holy Family stayed for three months and Synagogue of Ben Ezra.
