We will be in Cairo in 2 weeks and have a reservation with a hotel close to Tahrir Square. Can't seem to find any good info on the status of the protests at Tahrir or the general safety of down town Cairo. I understand that there are protests on Fridays.
Should we be concerned if we stay in this part of the city? We had hoped to just walk around and take in the core of Cairo rather than be walled up on the edge of the city.
If we walk around this area at night to find a resturant we should be ok?
Is it safe to visit Coptic Cairo and Islamic Cairo?
Thanks for your help
