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.
Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Musee de la Barque Solaire (in Giza) and Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, and examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

To see maps, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo holiday tool .

London, UK to Cairo is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
