A beautiful fortress with spectacular views of the Cairo city scape. In June 2012, the Citadel (along with most other tourist sites), was almost eerily devoid of visitors--sad for the vendors who depend on the tourist trade for a livelihood. Media hype about political unrest has frightened the guests away. But I can attest from first-hand experience that Cairo is as safe and visitor-friendly as ever.
