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.
Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary) and Mit Rahina Museum will appeal to history buffs. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Islamic Cairo and Mosque of Ibn Tulun. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Saqqara (Mastaba of Ti & Step Pyramid of Djoser), Pyramids of Dahshour (in Giza) and Meidum Pyramid (in El Wasta). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at Gayer-Anderson Museum (Bayt al-Kiritliya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Greek Orthodox Church of St. George (Mari Girgis), pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St Sergius and Bacchus, and steep yourself in history at Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan.
