Suez, Egypt, is located 80 mi/130 km east of Cairo and is one of the three main cities along the Suez Canal. The other two are Port Said to the north and Ismailia in the center; Suez is to the south.
Suez was heavily damaged during the 1956, 1967 and 1973 wars and was almost completely evacuated between 1967 and 1973. Although it has been rebuilt, there is very little to do.
However, Suez can provide a day of relaxation if you're in the area. Stop by and observe the canal traffic, lie on the beaches, shop in the market, go fishing or simply watch the changing colors of the nearby Ataka Mountains.
The Convent of the Good Chapel Sisters features the Statue of Our Lady, which draws pilgrims from around the world—particularly cancer patients and women with fertility problems. The military club and military museums are also worth visiting.
