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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Step Pyramid of Djoser and Mit Rahina Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan and Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay. There's still lots to do: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, walk around Al-Azhar Park, take in the exciting artwork at Oum El Dounia Gallery, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Tomb of Shah of Iran.

For photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairo day trip planner.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Cairo is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus. When traveling from Tel Aviv in March, plan for a bit warmer days in Cairo, with highs around °C, while nights are about the same with lows around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Alexandria.
