Point of Interest
“This Citadel, one of Cairo's most iconic landmarks, was the seat of the Egyptian government since the 1200s until the advent of Modern Egypt around 150 years ago. One of the most well-known symbols of Cairo is the Mosque of Muhammad Ali, whose eponymous builder is widely considered to be the founder of modern Egypt. You will have great view of Cairo from the Citadel, and, on a clear day, you will even be able to see the Pyramids, 16 kilometers (10 miles) away! ”

Restaurant
“This is another "Take me back to 1960s Egypt!" spot and the decor is unchanged. It's a strange place, one that has vibe, ambience inside as if you are sitting in a garden. Try the feta or the molokhaya. Also, the stuffed artichokes with meat and béchamel is a good appetizer. Also located in downtown Cairo. ”
