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 The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. For shopping fun, head to Khan Al-Khalili or Al Wikalah. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Khafre's Pyramid & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, head off the coast to Zamalek (Gezira Island), and delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids.
