Step out of Cairo with an excursion to Great Sphinx in Giza--about 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Greek Orthodox Church of St. George (Mari Girgis), trot along with a tour on horseback, and admire the masterpieces at Gayer-Anderson Museum (Bayt al-Kiritliya).
