More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
You'll explore and learn at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Lenhert & Landrock. Kids will appreciate attractions like Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx. Spend the 11th (Sun) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, and view the masterpieces at Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre.

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Kids will enjoy Colosseum and Pantheon. Museum-lovers will get to explore Vatican Museums and Musei Capitolini. Change things up with these side-trips from Rome: Tivoli (Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Trevi Fountain, wander the streets of Via Condotti, appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza Navona, and stop by Trastevere.
