ok in alex visit catcomb kom el shoafa

& may be visit bombie colomn
you can visit also national museum in cairo &in alexandria
there is alot of places you may visit to go shopping in egypt like city stars and khan el khalely and try the local egyptain food you will like it
first you must decide where you will go in Egypt then you will know the most interisting things to do there in 3 days any way you are welcome any time.
Egypt is big, which city?
If you gonna spend your three days in the capital "Cairo", there're lots to do.

But the if you wanna combine, eating and having fun at the same time, My advice to you is to get on one of those restaurants boats in Giza, you'll find a verity of delicious food as well as great shows like Billy dancing and oriental music played by a band and the boat will sail through the Nile on a cruise which you definitely will like very much
as you have very few days in egypt i advise you to explore cairo & enjoy the local food like Koshari in Abu tarek resturant in down town
also you should try the Ful & Falafel & shisha with tea in Khan El-Khalili area
and you still have time to make an overday to Alexandria & do not forget to try the sea food in any resrturant at el kornish area
if you need more help please do not hesitate to contact me for more advise
in each of the 3 days you can visit a special town:
-have your breakfast (either orientall or at hotel)
-visit any monuments and such places in town
-visit downtown and mix up with people there in that town
Three days with so much to choose from! Of course I'm going to have to suggest Luxor. :-) With only three days, it will have to be a day trip but one day is better than none at all. If you book early enough in advance, you can fly quite inexpensively. (Pls send me a PM if you need help booking flights). I would suggest visiting the tombs at the Valley of the Kings, Luxor and Karnak Temples and Medinat Habu. (You can have a look at some of our tours). Then take a leisurely feluccca ride on the Nile at sunset. The Nile is always magical, but is at its best in Luxor (and Aswan). Sorry Cairo :-).

For 2 days in Cairo, day 1 - You'll have to start early but you can do the pyramids at Sakkara and Dahshur, then the Giza Pyramids and then end the day at the Egyptian Museum. It's less crowded in the afternoons. Giza is better to do later in the day as Cairo is sometimes quite smoggy in the morning and you'll get better pictures. Khan El Khalili is a must for shopping and is wonderful in the evenings when most of the tourists have gone home and Egyptian families are out socializing. Have a chai and a sheesha

For Day 2, you can see some of the more popular mosques in Islamic Cairo. One of my faves is Ibn Tulun. The mosque at the Citadel is also quite amazing. Again, start very early and you may get to visit The Hanging Church in Coptic Cairo. Most importantly, take the time on this second day to 'get lost' in Cairo. Wander about, see the alleys, watch the people go about their daily business. Don't be afraid to venture out, try a local dish (pigeon, anyone?) and converse with the people. It is one of the most rewarding things you can do in Egypt. It is a country filled with treasures, but the best of those is its people.

Hope this helped.
