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 (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Giza) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and explore the galleries of Oum El Dounia Gallery.

To find traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read Cairo travel route builder site.
