Cairo — 4 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.
Bring the kids along to The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Off-Road Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Pyramid of Teti (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's much more to do: take an exotic tour of a safari tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque-Sabil of Sulayman Agha al-Silahdar, and steep yourself in history at Mosque of Muhammad Ali.

Egypt travel guide

4.5
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.
