Egypt to Enhance Religious Tourism

As a part of the efforts to elevate Egypt’s tourism and attract a diverse selection of religious visitors, Yehia Rashed, tourism minister, Egypt has unveiled plans to retrace the route of the holy family and inspire faithful travellers to visit the destination.

With the support of Vatican City, the initiative will aim to map the itinerary taken by Joseph, Mary and Jesus as they sought refuge in Egypt.

The story and their paths have been documented by scholars, which will act as the foundation for Rashed’s vision to create a tailor-made, unforgettable experience for guests by visiting churches, monasteries, caves and other related sites.
