City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Great Sphinx, Giza Plateau, &more) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). The adventure continues: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, take in the exciting artwork at Oum El Dounia Gallery, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, and explore the galleries of Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre.
