City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Fri): contemplate the long history of Pyramids of Giza, steep yourself in history at Great Sphinx, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and then delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids.

For ratings, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo trip planning tool.

Toronto, Canada to Cairo is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Toronto to Cairo due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Toronto in December; daily highs in Cairo reach 24°C and lows reach 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Alexandria.
