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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, &more). Spend the 12th (Thu) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, look for gifts at Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch, make a trip to Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay, and get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili.

To see photos, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, use the Cairo day trip website.
