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 Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, &more). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, visit Islamic Cairo, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili.

To find photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo route planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 65°F in January, and nighttime lows around 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
