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.
The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Pyramids of Giza are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Popular historic sites such as Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids and Mosque of Muhammad Ali are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Khafre's Pyramid & Great Sphinx). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Coptic Cairo, stop by Bazar Noobr, admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and stop by Islamic Cairo.

For maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Cairo trip itinerary maker website.

Mumbai, India to Cairo is an approximately 10- hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Mumbai to Cairo, you'll gain 3.5 hours due to the time zone difference.
