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 out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Giza Plateau, &more) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, view the masterpieces at Oum El Dounia Gallery, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.
