Top 10 Cairo hidden gems



Description:

Everybody knows the Pyramids, the Egyptian Museum, Khan al-Khalili and the Citadel. But Cairo has so much more to offer than that. This top ten list of Cairo’s hidden gems contains a selection of places that aren’t so well known, but still deserve to be part of every itinerary in Cairo. The top ten gems of Cairo include bizarre museums, lesser visited – but still accessible – monuments, and venues the locals check out for live music. Finally, a visit to Qarafa and the Solar Cities Urban Eco Tour will take you to parts of Cairo that even many locals don’t know!
