Cairo, Egypt

Visit Memphis, the capital of Ancient Egypt, as well as the great Colossus of Ramses II.

Experience Memphis, the capital of Ancient Egypt and located on the West Bank of the Nile about 20kms from Cairo. According to Herodotus, it was founded around 3100BC by Menes, although this is likely to be mythical, but the city ebbed and flowed through Egypt's long history, battling for power against the towns of Thebes (Luxor) and Alexandria. There is a great deal of antiquity still on offer in Memphis and it is well worth a visit.
