On this full-day tour from Sharm el-Sheikh, visit St. Catherine's Monastery at the foot of Mount Sinai. After your pilgrimage to the first Christian Orthodox monastery in the world, head to Dahab; a pretty town of beach bums and Bedouins by the Red Sea.
What to Expect
Visit the oldest Orthodox Christian monastery in the world, St. Catherine's Monastery, where Islamic, Christian, and Jewish cultural history are interwoven. Explore the library of the monastery, probably the first of its kind, where there are over 6,000 manuscripts in various languages. Then take a stroll around the 6th-century St. Catherine's Church, and see its famous mosaic of the Transfiguration of Jesus.
Enjoy a delicious lunch in the small town of St. Catherine before continuing to Dahab; a hippie town of Bedouins, scuba divers, yoga masters, and pro windsurfers. Stroll along the beautiful promenade by the Red Sea, pick up some souvenirs, and see top windsurfers make the most of the Egyptian breeze!
Then it's time to head back to your hotel in Sharm el-Sheikh, having enjoyed a great day seeing the best of Egypt's Sinai peninsula.
