DISCOVER ENCHANTING CAIRO WITH TRAVEL BY AIR FRANCE
There is a beautiful smell of jasmine in the gardens of Heliopolis, with rose sellers along the coastal path, where lovers walk hand in hand in the evening. The night is mild, laden with the smell of chichas. Cairo never seems to sleep, and never stop living. Everything is forgiven in Cairo, as something seems to make everything calm. Its Pyramids defy time and the nurturing river Nile flows from the heart of Africa.
