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.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Mon): get a taste of the local shopping with Khan Al-Khalili, then admire the masterpieces at Gayer-Anderson Museum (Bayt al-Kiritliya), and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Ibn Tulun.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Cairo trip simple and quick.

York, UK to Cairo is an approximately 10-hour combination of train and flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and flight; or do a combination of car and train.
