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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Great Sphinx. Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Mena House. Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Meidum Pyramid, & more). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Step Pyramid of Djoser, get to know the fascinating history of Old City (Coptic Cairo), and shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Cairo trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairo can reach 69°F, while at night they dip to 54°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
