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: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and contemplate the long history of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids.
