Cairo Guide

Although Cairo itself is a fairly modern city, dating back only a few hundred years, its proximity to the mighty pyramids of the Giza plateau have imbued it with a great deal of importance in studies of the ancient world, and it has become one of the most important tourist destinations in Africa as a result. Aside from the pyramids on the outskirts of this sprawling city, attractions include the legendary Egyptian Museum of Antiquities where you can see many ancient treasures, and the old bazaar, where you can find stalls selling perfume and antiques amongst other things.
