City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
Popular historic sites such as Pyramids of Giza and Bab al-Futuh are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Nile River. Step out of Cairo with an excursion to Great Sphinx in Giza--about 34 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and try to win big at Casino Barriere El Gezirah - Le Caire.

For where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Cairo road trip site.

New Delhi, India to Cairo is an approximately 11-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Cairo. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from New Delhi in June, with highs in Cairo at 40°C and lows at 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) so you can drive to Saqqara.
