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.
Step out of the city life by going to Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Valley of the Whales (Wadi Al-Hitan). Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Islamic Cairo and Pyramids of Giza. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Dream land park (in 6th of October City) and Giza (Pyramids of Dahshour, Solar Boat Museum, & more). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Old City (Coptic Cairo), explore the ancient world of Bent Pyramid, see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airport is Cairo International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
