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 & Great Sphinx). Spend the 29th (Sat) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, contemplate the long history of Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan, appreciate the extensive heritage of Old City (Coptic Cairo), and explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids.
