Chaotic Cairo can seem overpowering and mind-boggling, but look closer and you will discover its many hidden charms. It's easy to spend hours, if not days, going through the rooms of the Egyptian Museum spilling over with ancient treasures. The highlights are undoubtedly the Tutankhamun and the mummy rooms.
Get a whiff of the past, as you jostle with crowds and make your way through the narrow alleyways of the Khan el-Khalili bazaar scouring the stalls for souvenirs. Around the bazaar, keep your eyes open for some of Islamic Cairo's finest architectural jewels. Later, escape the mayhem and go on a leisurely felucca ride down the Nile.
No trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to the Pyramids of Giza, the last remaining wonder of the ancient world. Built 4000 years ago, their imposing size, impeccable geometry and fascinating history continue to dazzle and astound.
Continue to learn about the ancient Egyptians as you explore the many sights of Luxor, the capital of ancient Egypt. Stroll through the Valley of the Kings and visit Tutankhamun's tomb that was discovered, largely intact, by Howard Carter in 1922.
