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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Giza). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, and don't miss a visit to Coptic Cairo.
