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: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Dahshour & Musee de la Barque Solaire). And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, do sightseeing your way with Private Tours, take a stroll through Islamic Cairo, and shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili.

For reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Cairo day trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Nigeria, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in October, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
