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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Old City (Coptic Cairo) and Great Sphinx. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Coptic Museum and Pyramids of Giza. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Solar Boat Museum & Khafre's Pyramid). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and wander the streets of Islamic Cairo.
