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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Musee de la Barque Solaire & Giza Plateau) and Saqqara (Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids & Step Pyramid of Djoser). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, delve into the distant past at Memphis Historical Site, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and stroll around Al-Azhar Park.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Cairo holiday maker website.

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