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 outdoors at Valley of the Whales (Wadi Al-Hitan) and Zamalek (Gezira Island). Old City (Coptic Cairo) and Mohamed Ali Mosque will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Cairo with an excursion to Pyramids of Giza in Giza--about 32 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), contemplate the long history of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, and hunt for treasures at Khan Al-Khalili.
