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

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Orléans Cathedral and The Army Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Paris: Chartres Cathedral (in Chartres), Chateau de Chantilly (in Chantilly City) and Palace of Versailles (in Versailles). Pack the 10th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Parc Asterix. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Parc des Felins, admire the natural beauty at Jardin des Tuileries, and contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower.
