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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Safaris and Step Pyramid of Djoser. Step out of the city life by going to Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Nile River. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Al Fayyum (Caricature Museum & Pyramids of El Fayoum) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Musee de la Barque Solaire, & more). On the 22nd (Mon), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. Spend the 26th (Fri) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Ibn Tulun, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Islamic Arts, and take an in-depth tour of Manial Palace Museum.
