... Roman fortress all around it too. We went inside, and Nardeen gave us a bit of history about the place, and told us why it was called the Hanging Church. It was actually built on top of the Roman fortress, and some rooms had glass floors, so you could see down into the fortress, so the church actually has no real foundations, its just kind of hanging there!

The only downside to this experience was our guide who asked ...
... there in 1869. The hotel is ranked #2 among Giza’s 42 hotels. Upon arrival, our new A&K friends see to our registration and luggage. We never raise a finger. We are offered a golf cart to transport us to our room but choose to walk. We need to stretch our legs after hours of sitting on aircraft. Our bellman good naturedly walks with us.
