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 some cultural insight at Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mosque of Muhammad Ali and Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary). Change things up with a short trip to Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids in Saqqara (about 52 minutes away). It doesn't end there: get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili and wander the streets of Zamalek (Gezira Island).
