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.
Old City (Coptic Cairo) and Pyramids of Giza are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Cairo to go to Giza and see Great Sphinx, which is approximately 34 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, admire the landmark architecture of Step Pyramid of Djoser, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary).

If you are flying in from Azerbaijan, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In May in Cairo, expect temperatures between 38°C during the day and 23°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
