Flights to Cairo
Exotic and down to earth, ancient and modern, Cairo is a city of contrasts and there's much more to this dynamic metropolis than just pyramids. Every trip to the capital of Egypt leaves visitors with memories of sights and experiences, people and tastes. It could be memories of haggling for beautiful fabrics in the Khan al-Khalili bazaar, listening to jazz as the River Nile flows past at the Kempinski Bar or hearing the call of the muezzin from Al-Azhar mosque as you sip tea in Tahrir Square. It's a city that is full of life and energy, but it's also welcoming.
Things to do in Cairo

Enter the corridors of the Great Pyramid, gaze at the enigmatic Sphinx and see the unearthed ceremonial boats at the Solar Boat Museum.
