Cairo

— 3 nights

City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Khan Al-Khalili. Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Nile River. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Coptic Cairo, hit the best photo ops around with Egypt Tailor Made Day Tours, stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch, and stroll around Al-Azhar Park.

To find photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairo trip planner.

Crete, Greece to Cairo is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. Traveling from Crete in October, expect Cairo to be a bit warmer, temps between 35°C and 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) early enough to catch the flight to Luxor.

Egypt travel guide

4.5
Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.
