A step back in time to this historical treasure. Souks have a life and soul that capture the imagination of times gone by. Nizwa is no exception to this. The little streets around the fort offer all sorts of wares to tourists and locals alike....More

What a lovely place. The locals love to barter, so be prepared. An excellent place to visit for presents to take home.
