With a population of more than 20 million in Greater Cairo, it perhaps comes as no surprise that the Egyptian capital is one of the most chaotic cities in North Africa. It is a melting pot of cultures, religions and traditions, and can feel like complete sensory overload for any first-time visitor. With notoriously bad traffic and packed streets, this isn’t a place for the faint-hearted; however, since most of the trips we design start here, we at cazenove+loyd, ensure every moment in Cairo is as exciting and memorable as possible. After all, it is home to some of the world’s most renowned archaeological treasures. While we usually recommend two days here, for culture vultures, three might be better.
