Egypt - Cairo & Egyptian Museum (Chapter)
This is the Cairo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Egypt guidebook.
Crowds and smog are a small price to pay to tap into the urban buzz produced by 20-or-so million inhabitants simultaneously crushing the city’s infrastructure under their collective weight and lifting its spirit up with their exceptional charm and humour.
- tip your head back and gape at the Pyramids of Giza
- give your regards to Tutankhamun and his cohorts in the mazelike Egyptian Museum
- stroll the beautifully restored stretch of medieval street known as Bein al-Qasreen
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Cairo, Giza.
