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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Pyramids of Giza. Visiting Safaris and Mena House will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Giza (Great Sphinx & Solar Boat Museum). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, explore the ancient world of Bent Pyramid, stroll through Al-Azhar Park, and take a stroll through Islamic Cairo.

To see where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 40°C in June, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
