How to Spend 2 Days in Cairo

How to Spend 2 Days in Cairo

With two days in Cairo, you have time to take in top historic sites in the city and its surrounding areas, and squeeze in some shopping and live entertainment. Here’s one way to see Cairo in two days.

Day 1: A Day in the City

**Morning:**Start your morning with a visit to Old Cairo, also known as Coptic Cairo, home to many of the city’s oldest religious sites. While the area is best known for the Coptic Hanging Church, it’s also home to numerous mosques as well as the oldest synagogue in Egypt.

**Afternoon:**After lunch, head to the Egyptian Museum, which houses the world’s largest collection of antiquities from Ancient Egypt. Here you find everything from ancient burial artifacts to Greco-Roman mummies, as well as the golden burial mask of the boy king Tutankhamun himself.  

**Night:**Wrap up your day with a sunset cruise aboard early-evening cruise on the Nile River aboard a felucca, a traditional Egyptian sailboat. Follow this up with a visit to the Khan el-Khalili Souk, full of busy lanes and stalls selling everything from handicrafts to Egyptian cotton items to locally made small-batch perfumes.

 

Day 2: Ancient Archaeology

**Morning:**Get up early and head out to the Giza Pyramids, a short jaunt from Cairo—made easier on a tour with round-trip transport. Along with the three famous pyramids, the site is home to a number of smaller pyramids and ancient sites, the most notable of which is the iconic Great Sphinx.  

**Afternoon:**Spend your afternoon exploring the ancient ruins of Memphis, Egypt’s ancient capital city—some tours include this stop with one in Giza as well as Saqqara. In Saqqara you find the step pyramid of Djoser, likely the first stone monument in the area and inspiration for construction of the Giza pyramids.

 

**Night:**In the evening, return to Cairo for a dinner cruise on the Nile River. Most cruises last around two hours and feature a wide variety of food and drinks, with live traditional folk music and dance along with belly dance performances.
