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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids. Family-friendly places like The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Great Sphinx will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Musee de la Barque Solaire & Giza Plateau). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Muhammad Ali, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, and steep yourself in history at Ben Ezra Synagogue.
