The crumbling grandeur of the Great Sphinx and colossal pyramids can make it easy to forget that Egypt has even more delights to offer travelers and curiosity seekers.

Yes, Egypt’s ancient history is fascinating, and the allure of relics from thousands of years ago is irresistible. But as these photographers illustrate so vividly, cities like Cairo and Alexandria showcase pretty details and charming vistas around every corner.
