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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and wander the streets of Islamic Cairo.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairo itinerary planner.

Montreal, Canada to Cairo is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Traveling from Montreal to Cairo, you'll lose 7 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Montreal in July, things will get somewhat warmer in Cairo: highs are around °C and lows about °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Hurghada.
