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.
Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, and admire the landmark architecture of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary).

Plan my trip to Cairo with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
