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 Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, and explore the ancient world of Giza Plateau.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo trip planning site .

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Cairo is an approximately 21-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Sao Paulo to Cairo due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Sao Paulo in September, expect Cairo to be a bit warmer, temps between 39°C and 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Wed) early enough to travel to Luxor.

A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Luxor: Dendera Temple Complex (in Dendera) and Temple of Horus at Edfu (in Edfu).
