Cairo

— 3 nights

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.
Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, &more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, explore the activities along Nile River, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, and view the masterpieces at Oum El Dounia Gallery.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, go to the Cairo day trip site.

Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.
