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.
Visiting Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Safaris will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at The Coptic Museum and Pyramids of Giza. Explore Cairo's surroundings by going to Giza (Meidum Pyramid, Great Sphinx, & more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan, admire the landmark architecture of Hanging Church (El Muallaqa, Sitt Mariam, St Mary), and take a stroll through Islamic Cairo.

To see other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Cairo visit planner.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
