The city of 1001 minarets… and the Pyramids


Cairo : The city of 1001 minarets... and the Pyramids

Cairo is known the world over for the Great Pyramids of Giza, but by no means is that the only reason to visit. This city of over 20 million people is known for its cheerful chaos and is the best place to explore what we locals consider the ‘real Egypt’. 
So whether you’re interested in Ancient Egypt, centuries-old churches, medieval mosques, bustling bazaars or an up-and-coming restaurant and bar scene, Cairo is an eclectic mish-mash of all of that and even more.
