Port Said, Egypt (for Cairo & Giza)
Port Said has been the "gateway to the East" for ocean liner passengers since the opening of the Suez Canal. Situated where the marshes of the Nile Delta meet the sands of the Sinai Peninsula, the city has a history stretching back to Pharaonic times. Today, Port Said is a popular resort destination for Egyptians, who prize its duty-free stores and boutiques. Port Said is your gateway to Cairo, the Nile Valley, and the mysteries of ancient Egypt. The Great Pyramid of Cheops at Giza was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - and the only one of those ancient landmarks to survive today.
The royal treasures of Tutankhamen on display at the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities in Cairo, are alone worth a trip to Egypt.
