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). Spend the 21st (Fri) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, get to know the fascinating history of Old City (Coptic Cairo), browse the different shops at Khan Al-Khalili, and examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum.

To see photos, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Cairo journey builder .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. June in Cairo sees daily highs of 40°C and lows of 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
