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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pyramids of Giza and Statue of Ramesses II. Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Dahshour). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St Sergius and Bacchus, admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and don't miss a visit to Sharia Al Mu'izz Li-Din Allah.

Before you visit Cairo, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Step off the beaten path and head to Chartres Cathedral and Jardin des Tuileries.

Pack the 10th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Parc Asterix. Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Louvre Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and walk around Luxembourg Gardens.
