Use the drop-down menu below to explore Cairo.
Resting on both banks of the River Nile, Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in the Arab world. Cairo has been inhabited for over 6000 years and has served as the capital of numerous Egyptian civilisations.
At the heart of the city is Tahrir Square, a busy tourist hub which features the world-renowned Egyptian Museum displaying an array of antiquities including royal mummies and gilded King Tutankhamun artefacts. Nearby, Giza is the site of the iconic pyramids and the Great Sphinx, dating back to the 26th century BC. While these and countless other ancient treasures are undoubtedly the main tourist sights, cosmopolitan Cairo is certainly not lacking in modern attractions. Visitors can mix with the locals at boisterous Baladi bars, enjoy excellent shopping at the Khan al-Khalili Bazaar, watch the sunset from the impressive Cairo Tower, or catch a show at the stately Cairo Opera House.
July is the hottest month in Cairo with an average temperature of 28°C (82°F) and the coldest is January at 13.5°C (56°F) with the most daily sunshine hours at 14 in June. The wettest month is January with an average of 14.5mm of rain.
