Included in the many interesting attractions Cairo and the surrounding region have to offer are more than fifty museums housing relics and artifacts from several thousand years of Egyptian history. The Tahir Museum is home to the body of Ramesses II, the most powerful Pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty, who reigned between 1279 and 1213 BC. Of course, no visit want to Egypt would be complete without a trip to see two true icons of the country; the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx at Giza. Built thousands of years ago, these monuments to power still inspire awe and wonder in people today. A dinner cruise along the Nile is a nice way to spend a couple of hours soaking up the scenery and enjoying a good meal.
