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.
Popular historic sites such as Khafre's Pyramid and Bent Pyramid are in your itinerary. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Zamalek (Gezira Island) and Pyramids of Dahshour. Step out of Cairo with an excursion to Solar Boat Museum in Giza--about 36 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Islamic Cairo, explore the ancient world of Kefre, the second pyramid, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and buy something for everyone on your list at Festival City Mall.

To see ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairo travel itinerary creator.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Cairo. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in March, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
