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). Spend the 30th (Sun) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, walk around Al-Azhar Park, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, and contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River.

For more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Cairo journey planner .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 40°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
