Cairo, nicknamed "The City of A Thousand Minarets", is the capital city of Egypt, and is the largest city in Africa and the Arab World. Cairo's metropolitan area has a population of about 19 million people. It is the largest metropolitan area in Egypt, and is one of the most populous in the world. Cairo has long been the centre of the region's cultural and artistic life.
 
While Al-Qahirah is the official name of the city in Arabic, Egyptians often refer to it simply as Misr (the Arabic name for Egypt itself).
 
Cairo has a mixture of pre-historic and modern cultural sites. Tourists visit Cairo to explore the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, Sakkara, Memphis, Dashour, the Citadel of Saladin, Islamic and Coptic Cairo, the Egyptian Museum, and Khan El-Khalili (Old Bazaar).  A visit to Al-Azhar Park, with its spectacular panoramic view of Cairo, and a felucca Nile cruise to watch the million lights of Cairo by night are also Musts. It’s believed that it takes a lifetime to explore one small portion of what Cairo has to offer. However, three of four days are enough to discover briefly the top highlights of the city.
 
The weather in Cairo is hot in summer. Between May and October the average temperature is 40°C (105°F) during the day. In winter, between November and April, the temperature average is 20°C (68°F) during the day.  Sand storms may occur between February and April.
