Cairo

— 6 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Giza Plateau, &more) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). Spend the 6th (Fri) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. On the 7th (Sat), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, steep yourself in history at Mosque of Muhammad Ali, and see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour.
