Egypt is one of the most well-known and magnificent ancient empires in the world, and its capital captures the spirit that made this civilization so grand. Cairo is a bustling city that moves at blazing speed, but the pace of modern life doesn’t take away from the amazing history and old-world magic that remains here. The historic heart of the city is known as “Islamic Cairo,” the central area packed full of wonderful mosques, mansions, and tombs all connected by narrow stone streets.

Browse the stalls of the famous Khan el-Khalili, the ancient bazaar located near the Al-Hussein Mosque with its ornate medieval archways. Here, you will find authentic local coffeehouses, street food, and even traditional shisha (hookah). When the hot sun finally makes its way below the horizon, check out Cairo’s legendary world-class nightlife, offering countless music cafes, clubs, and bars. And before you leave the city, cap off your trip by taking a taxi or public bus to the Giza Plateau, home of the iconic Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, to ponder the greatness of Ancient Egypt.
