Day 1: Arrival at airport

Our staff will assist with transferring you to the domestic airport for your flight to Sharm El Sheik. Departing Sharm you will enjoy spectacular desert and mountain landscapes as you ride to the ancient St. Catherine’s Monastery located at the foot of Mount Sinai. Bible holds that God spoke to Moses here through the burning bush and later gave him the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai’s summit. St. Catherine still functions as a monastery for Greek Orthodox monks. Their order was founded in the 4th century by Byzantine Empress Helena who built a small chapel on the site, dedicated to St. Catherine, early Christian martyr from Alexandria, who was tortured and beheaded (by her father!) for her faith. Her body was supposedly transported by angels to Mount Sinai’s highest peak where monks from the monastery guided in a dream, found it 300 years later.
In the 6th century Emperor Justinian ordered the building of a fortress, including a monastery, basilica and the original chapel to serve as a secure home for the monks and a refuge for Christians of southern Sinai. The most sanctified building in the complex is the Church and Chapel of the Burning Bush. The monastery has the worlds most valuable collection of icons and many rare books, some of which are on display in the church.
