    11,000 Years and Still Ticking: the Oldest Cities in the World


    Still, for those who have it on their travel bucket list, here’s a look at the 10 oldest continuously inhabited cities. Some are easy to visit, and others are too dangerous. Even if you have your own opinion on what the oldest city really is, we can agree on one thing: humanity goes back a long way.

    6. Faiyum, Egypt
    Inhabited since: 4000 BC

    Egypt’s oldest city occupies part of the ancient site of Crocodilopolis, which worshipped Sobek the Crocodile God and a sacred crocodile named Petsuchos. You can still find evidence of this past in the mounds north of the city that mark Crocodilopolis. In Faiyum you can find large bazaars, baths, and a popular weekly market. Pictured here is the Hawara pyramid. (Photo: Hannah Hethen/Flickr)
