Cairo is known for museums, historic sites, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, explore the activities along Nile River, and do sightseeing your way with Private Tours.

To see other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Cairo travel route planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Cairo is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train.
