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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Muhammad Ali, see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, and take a stroll through Coptic Cairo.

To find reviews, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Cairo trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. March in Cairo sees daily highs of 77°F and lows of 59°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
