Cairo

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pyramids of Giza and Step Pyramid of Djoser. Let the collections at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Great Sphinx (in Giza) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). There's much more to do: stroll around Al-Azhar Park, view the masterpieces at Sondos Papyrus, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay, and contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, read Cairo online trip maker.
