Nile View Zamalek: The best places to visit in Cairo

When people think about Egypt, one of the first things that come to mind is the iconic pyramids. However, you can do so much more than this when you visit Cairo. Meeting the locals, eating delicious food, and touring breathtaking sites will make your trip more memorable. You will find yourself surprised by how amazing the city of Cairo is. 

Here at Nile View Zamalek, we want our guests to experience the best that Egypt has to offer. The capital city of Cairo holds many surprises and will surely not disappoint in terms of giving you a taste of the culture. 

To learn more, see some of the best places you can visit here in Cairo below: 

  1. The Pyramids of Giza
    This is the number one tourist attraction that people want to visit, and for good reason. It is over 4,500 years old, and some people even say that it was built to withstand an eternity, and the structures are certainly proving that today. We suggest our guests spend a half-day at the pyramids to take in the splendour of the structure and explore the area. 
  2. The Egyptian museum
    If you’re the kind of person who wants to learn more about Egyptian culture and is fascinated by ancient Egypt, then the museum is a must-see. There are lots of artefacts and interesting exhibits on display. 

Some of the highlights include the real tomb and treasures of Tutankhamun, which has an entire gallery dedicated to it. You can even view ancient jewellery and real mummified bodies of Egyptian royals. 

  1. The Citadel
    Egypt has its fair share of architectural accomplishments, and you can bear witness to this when you visit the Citadel in downtown Cairo. With its gorgeous columns and majestic turrets, this structure will take your breath away and make for a good photo opportunity. 
  2. Sultan Hassan Mosque
    First built in 1356, this structure still stands today as a mosque visited by thousands of tourists yearly. Experts say that it’s the perfect example of Mamluk architecture, featuring stone walls and tall minarets. 

Moreover, the front door stands majestically with a height of almost 26 meters. A visit to this mosque will give you an in-depth look at Egyptian culture and architecture, plus it will leave you with great memories. 

  1. Downtown Cairo
    Back in the 19th century, Cairo was considered the Paris of the east because of the culture and beauty of the location. The original structures have since changed but you can still visit downtown Cairo and see some of the historical stores and houses. Plus, you can eat some delicious food and mingle with the locals.
