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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Giza (Pyramids of Giza & Great Sphinx). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, examine the collection at Egyptian Antiquities Museum, explore the activities along Nile River, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of Sultan Al-Ashraf Barsbay.

To plan Cairo vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Barcelona, Spain to Cairo is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Barcelona to Cairo due to the time zone difference. In December, Cairo is somewhat warmer than Barcelona - with highs of 24°C and lows of 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to take a bus to Alexandria.
