We spent a day visiting the attractions in Al-Moez Street. This street is an amazing open air museum and contains many monuments of Islamic architecture including mosques, sabeels (place for serving water to passers-by), kuttabs (schools), traditional bath, and city walls. No ticket is required if you only see the outside of the ancient buildings, a ticket is required to... More

you will enjoy to walk through 1100 years of history, many shops also for small gifts, prepare your camera to take pictures with the old places then finish your visit with an oriental juice :)

This part of Cairo represent the real romantic appearance of Ottoman empire and even times before, mostly Ayubis al-Hakim mosque. What could be a little bit disturbing is presence of motorbikes where could be pedestrian zone.

But after sunset there are these amazing lights which really give a good view. On the road sides you can see awesome colourful lantern shops, jewelry shops and tea/coffee shisha... More
