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 Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Giza). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, steep yourself in history at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay.

To see where to stay, maps, ratings, and tourist information, read Cairo trip itinerary planning tool.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Cairo International Airport. In March, daytime highs in Cairo are 77°F, while nighttime lows are 59°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
