City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx. Step out of Cairo to go to Giza and see Bent Pyramid, which is approximately 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), don't miss a visit to Sharia Al Mu'izz Li-Din Allah, explore the ancient world of Statue of Ramses II, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St Sergius and Bacchus.

City of Light

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Jardin des Tuileries and Orléans Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Paris: Chateau de Chantilly (in Chantilly City), Chartres Cathedral (in Chartres) and Palace of Versailles (in Versailles). Pack the 10th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Parc Asterix. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, explore the historical opulence of Chateau de Vaux-le-Vicomte, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower.
