Although there is a wealth of guidebooks to Cairo, this is the first to specifically target the needs of families with children. Now fully revised and updated, Cairo: The Family Guide provides all families living in Cairo--expatriate and Egyptian alike--with the resources and information needed to explore the city to the fullest. Organized by geographical area, each section begins with an overview of the area's history and residents. Then the author takes us on a detailed journey to the special treasures of each Cairo neighborhood, with photographs, line drawings, maps that pinpoint sites of interest, and plans of museums and other places of importance in the area. Each section also includes practical advice on how to get to each location, what to take on visits, opening hours, and much more. And, as many people know, an enjoyable afternoon means something entirely different to a six-year-old than to a thirteen-year-old: to this end, suggestions are age-sensitive, and a variety of activities are proposed.
