2 Days Tour St. Catherine from Cairo


Take this amazing 2-day journey from Cairo to St. Catherine’s Monastery and see Egypt’s most significant biblical monuments. Follow in Moses’ footsteps by entering the Sinai Desert, climbing Mount Sinai for a breathtaking desert sunrise, and then touring the Saint Catherine Monastery. St. Catherine’s Monastery is the oldest continuously inhabited Christian monastery in the world, with a history spanning seventeen centuries. The monastery is thought to have been established when God appeared to Moses in the Burning Bush, as described in the Old Testament. The Church also honors the 170 other saints known as the Sinai saints. Additionally, here are the revered relics of Saint Catherine.

The monastery has never been demolished, therefore it may be claimed to have kept the unique characteristics of its Greek and Roman past. People from other Christian confessions have honored the monastery by visiting this revered location as pilgrims. But from the very beginning, the Christians who lived in Sinai belonged to the Greek-speaking world, and they still do today.
