The Sinai Peninsula’s top historical destination, St. Catherine’s Monastery sits at the foot of Mt. Sinai, where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments. One of the oldest working monasteries in the world, this Greek Orthodox hermitage is home to the famous “burning bush” of the Old Testament as well as a glittering collection of religious icons and ancient manuscripts that is revered as one of the finest in the world. A day trip here is a must for any history-lover staying in Sharm el-Sheikh and can also include a hike up to the summit of Mt. Sinai.
