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 find plenty of places to visit near Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Egypt Papyrus Museum, & more), Saqqara (Serapeum, Pyramid of Unas, & more) and Al Fayyum (Caricature Museum, Lahun Pyramid, & more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, contemplate the long history of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, and shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili.

To find maps, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo travel planner.

In August, daytime highs in Cairo are 41°C, while nighttime lows are 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
