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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Egyptian Antiquities Museum and Great Sphinx. And it doesn't end there: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, take a stroll through Old City (Coptic Cairo), delve into the distant past at Giza Plateau, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary).

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In October in Cairo, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 23°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
