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 Mena House. Explore hidden gems such as Khafre's Pyramid and Step Pyramid of Djoser. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairo: Giza (Pyramids of Giza, Pyramids of Dahshour, & more). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Old City (Coptic Cairo), take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Ibn Tulun, delve into the distant past at Statue of Ramesses II, and steep yourself in history at Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairo travel route planning site .

Expect a daytime high around 21°C in January, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
