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: Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, admire the striking features of Khan Al-Khalili, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary).

For reviews, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo driving holiday planning site .

In December, daily temperatures in Cairo can reach 23°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
