I’m aware someone may say “pyramids are nothing special”, “it’s just a few stones” etc. I think they are very impressive, their history, how they were built and even the location – you are just outside the big city, but at the same time your’e on the desert.
As I said, I’m fascinated by ancient world and may a bit biased here,
but for me, one of the best places in Cairo is the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities with a rich collection of items from ancient Egypt.
Cairo is a large city with many diverse areas.
Depending which part of the city you visit, you may think Cairo is poor, crowded, old, modern, polluted, etc. Even some of the above adjectives are not really positive; Cairo is worth visiting!
