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). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, take a stroll through Coptic Cairo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay.
