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.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Mon): pause for some photo ops at Great Sphinx, then delve into the distant past at Khafre, the second pyramid, and then explore the ancient world of Keops Pyramid. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: browse the eclectic array of goods at Khan Al-Khalili, then delve into the distant past at Giza Plateau, and then enjoy breathtaking views from Cairo Tower.
