Cairo — 3 nights

City of a Thousand Minarets

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). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, shop like a local with Khan Al-Khalili, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Muhammad Ali, and contemplate the waterfront views at Nile River.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairo road trip planning website.

In November, daytime highs in Cairo are 29°C, while nighttime lows are 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to catch the flight to Abu Simbel.

Egypt travel guide

4.5
Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.
