Cairo

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Giza Plateau, &more) and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids (in Saqqara). Spend the 17th (Thu) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, step off the mainland to explore Zamalek (Gezira Island), explore the activities along Nile River, and wander the streets of Coptic Cairo.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairo trip itinerary maker website.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiport is Cairo International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 39°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) to allow time to travel to Luxor.

A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Mon): get all the information you need at ACE - Animal Care in Egypt, then delve into the distant past at Temple of Karnak, and then pause for some photo ops at Luxor Temple. On the 22nd (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: appreciate the history behind Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, explore the ancient world of Valley of the Kings, and then don't miss a visit to Deir el-Shelwit Temple.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Luxor trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
