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.
Get some cultural insight at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Cairo Horse Riding School. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pyramids of Giza and Mosque of Muhammad Ali. Take a break from Cairo with a short trip to Great Sphinx in Giza, about 34 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, wander the streets of Zamalek (Gezira Island), appreciate the extensive heritage of Coptic Cairo, and head outdoors with AERODIUM Egypt.

To find maps, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairo driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairo can reach 69°F, while at night they dip to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
