    Well worth a visit, to wander around and stumble across various churches eg the one which includes the cave where holy family rested! All highly evocative of an old religion, seemingly little changed.

    Islamic Cairo has long been a center of religion and learning- It is worth the visit, but there are lots of ways to experience this. We combined Islamic Cairo with the Citadel/Muhammad Ali Mosque, so we were able to discuss a lot of the history while overlooking from the Citadel.

    Walking tours are popular, but we chose to only walk at the more popular locations and use a van to take us around, while getting more history about the areas. We also took the tour guides recommendation for a local Egyptian restaurant (yes, we are aware how this normally works, but we were very happy with the recommendation and value- Have the discussion on value and expectations before you agree!).

    It is difficult to get an understanding of the Egyptian people and experience without discussing the history of Islam in Egypt, this is the best place to have that discussion.

    Cozy and in the middle of Cairo, now for Posh incomers, but still has its own heritage of shorter building and green tree streets, close to downtown Cairo, & Giza pyramids.

    Heliopolis used to be a suburb of Cairo but it is now a part of this eclectic city. It was created by a Belgian industrialist in the very beginning of 20th century. It feels more upscale and metropolitan, having a worldly vibe without loosing its identity. It feels safe and well organized. It is a friendly district of Cairo to stay in.
