  1. Wadi Natron is about 75 km away from Cairo on the Desert Road to Alexandria houses still four Coptic monasteries. It is nice to join Coptic families going around the same sites where the number of monks increases, where babies are christened, and many photos are taken. The Monastery of the Syrians behind St. Bishoy Monastry has beautiful frescoes in different styles. New ones are still being discovered under the grey plaster. One only two weeks ago. In addition to this, saw many churches in Cairo and other monasteries by the red sea.
    Thanks to Your Egypt Tours for organizing such an amazing tour
