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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Pyramids of Giza and Egyptian Antiquities Museum. Step out of Cairo with an excursion to Great Sphinx in Giza--about 34 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohamed Ali Mosque, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, and admire the landmark architecture of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary).
