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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Street of the Tentmakers (Sharia Khayamiya). Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, and explore the ancient world of Giza Plateau.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read Cairo attractions planning website.
