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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, view the masterpieces at Oum El Dounia Gallery, and contemplate the long history of Mosque of Muhammad Ali.
