City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
Visit Pyramids of Giza and Coptic Cairo for their historical value. Get outdoors at Safaris and Cairo Horse Riding School. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Giza (Great Sphinx & Giza Plateau). There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, explore the activities along Nile River, and stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch.
