The obvious answer is the pyramids and the Egyptian Museum followed by Islamic Cairo and perhaps Old (Coptic) Cairo but more detailed replies would depend on you detailing a little something of your interests and preferences.

Consider spending a day and visit the Pyramids at Dashur, Saqqara and a quick visit to Memphis.

I suggest that you read a guide book and see what appeals to you as how you choose to spend your time depends very much on your interests - which you have not mentioned.

I did a lot of background reading before my first visit to Egypt and, with only 3 whole days in Cairo that occasion, I spent one at Saqqara after a brief detour to Memphis, one at the Antiquities Museum and one at the Giza Pyramids and Solar Boat museum there.

You could easily spend a few days in Cairo because there is a lot inside and just outside the city.

Downtown Cario: Islamic and Coptic Cairo are musts. You can learn details here.
