The Suez Canal does not just connect the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea and define the border between Asia and Africa, it marks a glorious engineering victory over nature. This 193km-long sea-level canal was made by man in the 1850s and 1860s, marking an era of Egyptian glory and engineering genius.
Cruising the Suez Canal will let you experience the slower pace of life that is present here, especially in the most notable cities along the canal that were built as a result of its construction.
