In the spring, March is ideal, the day temperatures are pleasant and it's cool at night. The days are sunny and the light is beautiful for taking photographs and shooting video. It's the perfect climate for visiting the monuments, mosques and the whole city. It's also ideal for visiting the Pyramids and the Sphinx in the desert, which are a short distance from Cairo, at other times it is too hot.

Do not miss the market, where you have to haggle over everything! I recommend buying spices and traditional clothes, ignoring the hideous miniature statues of the Sphinx or King Tut! The silver and bronze jewelry is also affordable .. I bought a beautiful sterling silver pendant with the Egyptian alphabet engraved for about 50 €.

Super if you can pay, go for the five stars hotels, in Cairo or the fancy Resorts at the Red Sea side. These locations worth much more than whatever you will pay. Which by all means less expensive than Europe. Go for Gona, Hurgada, Safaga, Sharm and Dahab, for time to remember under the shinny sun, friendly enviroment. You will be satisfied, have a look at the net before going, you will find it better in reality.

Summer afternoon, Evinings and at nights. Sometimes when it's safe as before, you can spend the whole night to the next morning in different places or even at one place without getting board.

It's unique in the world. The three pyramids are not far away from the city and it's really exciting to get to go inside. The sphinx is really impressive. You can also go trekking in the desert, on a camel. Protect yourself from the sun well.

There are actually over 100 pyramids in Egypt and most of them are grouped around and near the City of Cairo.
Giza is, of course, the home of Egypt's best known pyramids, including the largest one in Egypt, that of Khufu.
In addition to the major pyramids, there are also no less than six pyramids built for queens, together with even smaller cult pyramids.
There are also many tombs, a number of temples, worker villages and the famous Great Sphinx.
One of Cairo's many epitaphs is the "City of 1,000 Minarets".
The city’s ... More mosques date from the earliest periods of Islam up to the modern varieties. Here are some of them: Al-Maridani mosque, El-Aqmar Mosque (Gray Mosque), the Mosque of El-Hakim, Ibn Tulun Mosque, the Mosque of Sulayman Pasha al-Khadim, and more and more.
The Egyptian Museum contains incredible and unique treasures as the The Tutankhamun Collection or the Royal Mummies.
More than a million and half tourists visit the museum annually, in addition to half a million Egyptians.

Cairo, the Triumphant City, is Egypt’s wonderful capital. It is the largest city in both the Middle East and Africa and lies at the centre of all routes leading to, and from Asia, Africa and Europe.
The city extends on the banks of the River Nile to the south of its delta.
Cairo is the administrative capital and, close by, is almost every Egypt Pyramid, such as the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Ancient Egyptian City of Memphis and Capital of the Old Kingdom, on the very edge of the city.
Cairo provides great and well organized culture, including ... More art galleries and music halls, such as the Cairo Opera House.
The city also provides some of the best accommodations and restaurants in the world, such as the Cairo Marriott and the Four Seasons.
Great part of the incredible and unbelievable charm of the capital of Egypt is the result of 2000 years mixture of Islamic, Christian Coptic and Jewish culture. An incredible and unique mixture that still keeps on flourishing to this day.

I think cairo contain many amazing touristic monuments (coptic-islamic-pharoes), many hotels with lots of entertainment, the people of egypt are very kind, and they love tourists, they are so helpful also, it's currently very affordable but yet unsafe, you should visit the Tahrir square , check out the AMAZING graffiti of the youth .
