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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairo side-trips: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx) and Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara). Next up on the itinerary: delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, contemplate the long history of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, and hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour.

To find photos, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read Cairo online trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 96°F in August, and nighttime lows around 78°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
