The Egyptian capital of Cairo is the largest city in Africa and home to nearly 20 million residents. The city’s proximity to the Great Sphinx and pyramids of Giza makes it a popular destination for tourists.
Modern Cairo which boasts contemporary architecture and typical Islamic architecture standing side by side, is not to be missed. Tourists should try to include a visit to the Egyptian Museum and the Cairo Opera House, as well as a boat ride down the River Nile, in their itineraries.
Cairo has a desert climate with high humidity. Dry wind storms that bring Saharan dust to the city are frequent in March and April. High temperatures in winter range from 13°C to 19°C, while in summer, the average high temperature is 35°C.
