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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Oum El Dounia Gallery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx) and Saqqara (Step Pyramid of Djoser & Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids). And it doesn't end there: get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary).
