It is a great place specially at night, it ends at Khan El Khalily where you can start another round. It used to be opened for footsteps only but now they reopened it again for cars and motorbikes which makes your visit a little bit uncomfortable since the street is too narrow for vehicles to cross on.

This street is like stepping back in time, if you love Damascus and old cities like it and have an interest in history, traditional bazaars and unforgettable walks, this is the place to go.

the street it self, the shops, the coffee shops.. everything there is really good... it is a rural place, it is not a fancy street but it is really historical where you can discover the fine Islamic art!

Sharia Muizz is - in my view - the most fascinating place in Cairo. Take a day and walk all the way from Bab el Nasr to the Ibn Tulun Mosque. Your feet will be sore at the end of the day - but you will have had a unique experience. The Islamic monuments are fascinating - and have partially... More

This is the oldest or most important street of medieval Cairo along which are a great number of historically significant monuments. It's definitely worth a day or half a day's visit.

In most historic places around the whole world; you can't find all these ancient buildings & landmarks together in one street , really preserved & finally cleaned, decorated & taken care of by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism.
