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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Pyramids of Dahshour and Step Pyramid of Djoser. Museum-lovers will get to explore Museum of Islamic Arts and Oum El Dounia Gallery. Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Mastaba of Ti & Meidum Pyramid). There's lots more to do: browse the different shops at Cairo Festival City Mall, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Ibn Tulun, admire the masterpieces at The Coptic Museum, and browse the exhibits of Gayer-Anderson Museum (Bayt al-Kiritliya).

Expect a daytime high around 41°C in July, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
