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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Step Pyramid of Djoser and Pyramids of Dahshour. There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), look for gifts at Fair Trade Egypt, delve into the distant past with Excursion Cairo Day Tour, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Ibn Tulun.

For other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Cairo online holiday planner .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Cairo can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
