Owner description: After the Muslims conquered Egypt in 641 AD, they built their city, Al-Fustat, on what is now the southern border of modern Cairo. Today, this section of the city contains many important sites including the Mosque of Sultan Hassan, Mosque of al-Azhar and the Khan al-Khalili market, which is considered the heart of this area.

“Islamic Cairo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2013

The people here, for the most part, are very friendly! The streets are crazy with traffic and I don't think Egypt has any kind of pronounced rules when it comes to driving!!! Take a cab or drive with a local friend!
