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 day-by-day itinerary now includes Umm Kolthoum Museum as well as Manasterly Palace. Museum-lovers will get to explore Egyptian Antiquities Museum and Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre. Get a sense of the local culture at Great Sphinx and Coptic Cairo. Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Musee de la Barque Solaire, Egypt Papyrus Museum, & more) and Saqqara (Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep's Mastaba, Step Pyramid of Djoser, & more). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, admire the masterpieces at The Coptic Museum, steep yourself in history at Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan, and buy something for everyone on your list at Khan Al-Khalili.
