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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). Spend the 11th (Sun) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, get to know the fascinating history of Old City (Coptic Cairo), and browse the different shops at Khan Al-Khalili.

To find maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo online tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 41°C in August, and nighttime lows around 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
