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.
Visit Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx for their historical value. Egyptian Antiquities Museum and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Caricature Museum (in Al Fayyum), Giza (Pyramids of Dahshour, Solar Boat Museum, & more) and Monalisa Gallery (in Minuf). Spend the 23rd (Fri) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's much more to do: explore the activities along Nile River, delve into the distant past at Step Pyramid of Djoser, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mohamed Ali Mosque, and wander the streets of Zamalek (Gezira Island).

For traveler tips, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairo route planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 29°C in November, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
