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.
Kick off your visit on the 27th (Tue): delve into the distant past at Pyramids of Giza, then contemplate the long history of Great Sphinx, and then explore the activities along Nile River. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Muhammad Ali, and then explore the ancient world of Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairo trip planner .

In August in Cairo, expect temperatures between 41°C during the day and 30°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
