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 Egyptian Antiquities Museum and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids. Appreciate the collections at The Coptic Museum and Oum El Dounia Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Giza) and Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan, and pause for some serene contemplation at El-Selehdar Mosque.
