City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, stroll around Al-Azhar Park, explore the galleries of Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre, and stop by Fair Trade Egypt.

Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Fira is known for wineries, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: delve into the distant past at Akrotiri, enjoy the sand and surf at Perissa Black Sand Beach, make a trip to Sunset in Oia, and awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area.

To find other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Fira travel planner.

Getting from Cairo to Fira by flight takes about 7.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of car and ferry. When traveling from Cairo in June, plan for little chillier days in Fira, with highs around 32°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
