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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, & more). The adventure continues: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, get a tailor-made plan with Private Tours, walk around Al-Azhar Park, and take a stroll through Coptic Cairo.

To find other places to visit, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo route planner.

If you are flying in from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In October in Cairo, expect temperatures between 35°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
