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.
Egyptian Antiquities Museum and Pyramids of Giza are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Khan Al-Khalili and Oum El Dounia Gallery. Change things up with a short trip to Great Sphinx in Giza (about 34 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Old City (Coptic Cairo), take in the spiritual surroundings of Mohamed Ali Mosque, and stop by Nomad Gallery - Zamalek Main Branch.

Plan my trip to Cairo with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can fly from Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or drive. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Sharm El Sheikh in April, with highs in Cairo at 33°C and lows at 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
