The City of Pyramids

Cairo, the Middle East’s largest city, home of the famous Pyramids, is bathed in intoxicating history and culture.

Egypt’s capital is utterly unique, a megalopolis whose urban area is pushing 20 million inhabitants. The world’s longest river, the Nile, pulses through its heart and on its fringes lie those Pyramids.There are many Cairos to discover. In its ancient Arabic core the centuries peel back at every turn and mosque minarets vault for the heavens, with early 19th-century Downtown where the influence of Europe is felt in a city that offers a window into myriad worlds, cultures and civilisations.
