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.
Family-friendly places like KidZania Cairo and Cairo Festival City Mall (CFC) will thrill your kids. You'll explore and learn at Egyptian Antiquities Museum and Solar Boat Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairo: Giza (Great Sphinx, Pyramids of Giza, & more). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Al-Azhar Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohamed Ali Mosque.

To find ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo holiday planner .

If you are flying in from Tunisia, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 40°C in July, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
