Best Things To Do in Cairo
Some visitors are satisfied with a tour of the Pyramids of Giza, but there is so much more to this city. If its ancient ruins that draw you to Egypt's capital, carve out some time for Dahshur and Saqqara, two archeological sites that are peppered with pyramids and attract fewer tourists than Giza. For further insight into ancient Egypt, head to the Egyptian Antiquities Museum. Stepping into the winding streets of Islamic Cairo and Coptic Cairo whisks you back to the ancient world. And as dusk sets in over Cairo's sandy terrain, witness the monuments glow in the orange light of the setting sun as you enjoy a felucca ride on the Nile or a puff of hookah at one of Zamalek's many lounges.
