Cairo Attractions

It's not just the Pyramids that make Cairo such an incredible city to visit - there are almost too many amazing things to see and do here. Start with the famous Pharaonic stuff, make sure to check out some of the churches in the Religious compound, and leave enough time to dive right in to the mosques and markets of Islamic Cairo. Oh yeah - and riding a camel in the desert is one of those compulsory things to do!
