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.
Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids will appeal to history buffs. Museum-lovers will get to explore Egyptian Antiquities Museum and The Coptic Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Dahshour, Egyptian Oasis, & more) and Monalisa Gallery (in Minuf). Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Giza Plateau, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, buy something for everyone on your list at Khan Al-Khalili, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan.

To find photos, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Cairo trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Uzbekistan, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Cairo are 41°C, while nighttime lows are 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
