Cairo

— 7 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.
Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Zamalek (Gezira Island). Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, &more) and Saqqara (Memphis and Sakkara & Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids). Spend the 19th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Coptic Cairo, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, and visit Islamic Cairo.
