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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pyramids of Giza and Old City (Coptic Cairo). You'll explore and learn at Egyptian Antiquities Museum and The Coptic Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Khafre's Pyramid & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mohamed Ali Mosque, and stop by Bazar Noobr.
