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, Pyramids of Dahshour, & more). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, and hunt for treasures at Khan Al-Khalili.

For reviews, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
