The Egyptian Museum in Cairo is the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East and has the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world 🏺. It is a must-see! It's located near Tahrir Square so we can take a quick walk over there too.

One of the most fascinating places in Islamic Cairo. I have been looking to visit this hidden gem 💎 for so long. Then we'll have lunch at Khan Al-Khalili, the best open-air street bazaar. There we can pick up 🛒unique souvenirs like spices and perfumes, or simply soak up the local atmosphere.
