More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). Spend the 19th (Sun) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. On the 23rd (Thu), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. The adventure continues: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, wander the streets of Old City (Coptic Cairo), stroll around Al-Azhar Park, and shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili.
