I encourage you to visit Egypt. The opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the Holy Family is unforgettable, and such a trip will change the way you understand their story. Egypt is the cradle of human civilization with a rich history made up of many significant events, civilizations, and cultures. The country was chosen by God as the land of refuge for the Holy Family. By visiting Egypt, you will be able to experience the country’s hospitality and friendship firsthand.
A trip to Egypt following in the footsteps of the Holy Family can be designed to suit your needs, whether it be a shorter trip to visit only the landmarks around Cairo, or a longer trip throughout Egypt.
It is worth mentioning that Pope Francis has recently approved Egypt’s proposed path for The Flight into Egypt, which will allow tourists to, quite literally, follow in the footsteps of the holy family’s journey from Sinai to Asyut in Upper Egypt, as they fled the Roman murderous King Herod The Great.
Now is the perfect time to visit Egypt. This is the safest that the country has been since the revolution in 2011, and tourism is starting to increase. If you are interested in visiting Egypt, please let us know at the Diocese of Egypt, and we would be happy to connect you with a high-quality travel agency to help plan your trip.
We look forward to seeing you here in our beautiful country.
