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: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, delve into the distant past at Gizeh Plateau, appreciate the extensive heritage of Old City (Coptic Cairo), and wander the streets of Islamic Cairo.
