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've added Bab al-Futuh, Mosque of Muhammad Ali, Gayer-Anderson Museum (Bayt al-Kiritliya), and other attractions to your itinerary. Popular historic sites such as Pyramids of Giza and Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan are in your itinerary. Head to Cairo Festival City Mall and Khan Al-Khalilifor plenty of shopping. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Step Pyramid of Djoser (in Saqqara) and Giza (Great Sphinx & Pyramids of Dahshour). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, steep yourself in history at Mosque of Ibn Tulun, gain insight at Mosque of Al-Azhar, and explore the ancient world of Statue of Ramesses II.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in September, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
