Feel like taking a walk through a history book? Take that walk up & down El Muez L Deen Ellah street. The ancient tiled road is so rich with history on both sides, it is just fascinating, especially on a nice breezy Cairo automn evening. Try the cafes in the off roads and don't forget to make the short trip... More

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.

It had a beautiful old restored house called Beit El Sehemy house. I enjoyed the fact there were no tourists and we could watch the street come alive in the late morning.
