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.
Explore hidden gems such as Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids and Zamalek (Gezira Island). Pyramids of Giza and Islamic Cairo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Mit Rahina Museum (in Al Badrashin) and Mastaba of Ti (in Saqqara). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, take in the exciting artwork at Oum El Dounia Gallery, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Ramses II, and try to win big at Casino Barriere El Gezirah - Le Caire.

For other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo online travel planner.
