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: Saqqara (Pyramid of Unas, Mastaba of Mereruka, & more), Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more) and Al Fayyum (Pyramids of El Fayoum, Hawara Pyramid, & more). Spend the 13th (Sat) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. Spend the 14th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, browse the eclectic array of goods at Khan Al-Khalili, take a stroll through Coptic Cairo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Muhammad Ali.

To find ratings, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairo day trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 95°F in July, and nighttime lows around 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
