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 Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). Spend the 5th (Mon) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, make a trip to Coptic Cairo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Muhammad Ali.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo visit planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. August in Cairo sees daily highs of 96°F and lows of 78°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
