Under $100 / Africa

Giza is situated on the west bank of the Nile River and is one of the boroughs that make up the greater Cairo metropolitan area. The region is known for its proximity to the pyramids and Cairo proper. There are plenty of things to do without breaking the bank.

 

For breakfast, catch a ride to Ovio. This restaurant is located in a hotel, making it perfect if you’re staying in the area. The breakfast menu is loaded with local breakfast classics, including a number of egg specialties. You can eat comfortably here for less than $15.

 

Following breakfast, you are going to see some of the most iconic sights on the planet with a visit to the Necropolis of Giza. It costs less than $8 to enter the viewing area of the pyramids. For a few more dollars, you can enter one of the open pyramids. At any rate, hiking around and viewing the pyramids will take a fair chunk of your money and energy. Work up your full appetite and get ready for a great lunch.

 

For lunch, check out Alex Top. This cozy, local establishment serve a wide menu for lunch. You can get anything from pasta to pancakes here for no more than $10.

 

After lunch, it is time to take in more history. Head across the Nile and make for The Museum of Egyptian Antiquity. The museum opened to the public in March of this year and collects more than 100,000 unique artifacts from Egyptian antiquity, including a number of artifacts from the tomb of Tutankhamun. History buffs will easily be able to while away an entire afternoon sifting through the massive collection.

 

Go to Spectra Restaurant for dinner. Wide-ranging hours and a number of types of cuisine make sure you will find something you like. The menu is also affordable, and you will be able to get an entrée with sides for less than $30.

 

If you’re looking to stretch your day just a bit further, check out Elhadaba. This café is open late and offers great late-night food and affordable cocktails for a low-key nightcap.
