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 Saqqara (Step Pyramid of Djoser, Mastaba of Mereruka, & more), Al Fayyum (Caricature Museum, Hawara Pyramid, & more) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, don't miss a visit to Coptic Cairo, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Muhammad Ali.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Cairo trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
