Itinerary

- Depart from Sharm el Sheikh Port - Drive to St Catherine Monastery (150 Minutes) - Visit of the Monastery (120 Minutes) - Return to Sharm el Sheikh Port (150 Minutes)

You will be met at the port of Sharm el Sheikh by a Cruising Excursions representative holding a Cruising Excursions sign ready to commence your tour. 

This full-day tour takes you to St Catherine Monastery. Discover the historical Monastery which according to the UNESCO report is considered as the oldest working Christian Monastery in the world!

The journey starts with a 2.5-hour drive to St Catherine’s Monastery. The Monastery has a long and fascinating history – on this tour you will see the sacred place where Moses (Prophet Musa) talked to God in the miracle of the Burning Bush and received the 10 Commandments.

The Library, which was built between 1930 - 1943 and holds one of the richest monastic collections in the world. You do not want to miss out on an opportunity to see the second largest collection of illuminated manuscripts after the Vatican.

Within its imposing walls rests a citadel like no other, incredibly rich in important religious and historical structures – including The Church of the Emperor Justinian, The Chapel of the Burning Bush and Jethro's Wall.

You will also find a very rare icons gallery and unique hanging documents, such as – a rare copy of Mohamed’s prophet declaration referring to granting protection to the Monastery and exempting it from the taxes as well as, Napoleons letter.

Quite simply, the monastery is a defining feature of the Holy Land. Do not miss out on this unique historic experience with plenty of photo opportunities!

At the end the tour, you will head back to your air-conditioned transportation. Sit back and relax on your journey back to the cruise port.
