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.
Gayer-Anderson Museum (Bayt al-Kiritliya) and Memphis Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Visit Pyramids of Dahshour and Statue of Ramesses II for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Meidum Pyramid & Step Pyramid of Djoser). Spend the 23rd (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Zamalek (Gezira Island), explore the ancient world of Mastaba of Ti, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Greek Orthodox Church of St. George (Mari Girgis), and admire the masterpieces at The Coptic Museum.
