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.
Visit Pyramids of Giza and Coptic Cairo for their historical value. Do some cultural sightseeing at Islamic Cairo and Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan. Take a break from Cairo with a short trip to Great Sphinx in Giza, about 34 minutes away. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, steep yourself in history at Mosque of Muhammad Ali, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, and admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary).
