Cairo

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

For photos, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo trip itinerary planning tool.
