Cairo

— 1 day

City of a Thousand Minarets

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.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Thu): see the interesting displays at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and then delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo online travel route planner.

Expect a daytime high around 24°C in December, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.

Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.
