    Civilization and History in Egypt Lots of history in all the alley ways, exploring early Christian churches etc, and it's best to go with a guide, not the best signs.

    It was very well maintained for the age of the buildings and alley ways.It was a very wonderful time in ancient history

    What a way to start a tour, this majestic entrance has many things of note, notably the massive doors which were a stronghold point in ancient times. It's free to enter.

    This is an impressive part of Cairo.

    It is near the Egyptian Museum and the roads are wide and lined with palm trees and regal looking buildings.

    The square itself is centred with an obelisk flanked by statues of sacred animals.

    To a tourist like myself, these expansive areas look like a war zone of rubble. Definitely need some research to seriously visit this area, as I'm sure there are many tales and historical gems here.
