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: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). There's much more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, take a stroll through Coptic Cairo, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and delve into the distant past at Bent Pyramid.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In April in Cairo, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 62°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
