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.
Cairo Tower has been added to your itinerary. On the 28th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in panoramic vistas at Cairo Tower.

Plan a trip to Cairo easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Warsaw, Poland to Cairo is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Warsaw in January, with highs in Cairo at 21°C and lows at 11°C. On the 29th (Wed), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Bawiti.
