There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, and walk around Al-Azhar Park.

For where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo trip tool.
