More than 20 million people call Cairo their home and, as soon as you set foot in the sprawling metropolis, it's evident they make it crowded and chaotic, but also exuberant and charming.
Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, explore the activities along Nile River, delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, and walk around Al-Azhar Park.

For maps, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Cairo route builder .

When traveling from Luxor in March, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Cairo: temperatures range from 29°C by day to 17°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
