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 Old City (Coptic Cairo) and Great Sphinx. Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Mena House. Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Solar Boat Museum). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, steep yourself in history at Mohamed Ali Mosque, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, and take a stroll through Zamalek (Gezira Island).
