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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Coptic Cairo and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids. Visiting Nile River and Zamalek (Gezira Island) will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). Spend the 15th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 18th (Thu) floating through the air with a balloon tour. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, steep yourself in history at Mosque of Muhammad Ali, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, and see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In July, daytime highs in Cairo are 41°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
