The sprawling Cairo area makes it all seem like a bit too much. The Heliopolis area is, by comparison, much easier to handle. Since there was essentially nothing but desert here until the end of the 19th Century, Heliopolis has a very 20th Century feel. Some of the best meals and the finest desserts I have had in seven visits... More

I have always loved Heliopolis, specifically Korba. The architecture always captures you. Walking in a live aisle of history delivers one's soul to a different universe. Unique area, must visit.

Not far from Caior's down town there is a place created in 19th century by the architect Baron ( the one who build Paris' Metro). His residence, now is empty but the architecture of his house is amazing: a mix of indian and local architectural influences is obviously.

A quieter area compared to the chaos of downtown Cairo. Many upscale hotels in the area without the hefty pricetag of downtown.

I think it's the most elegant area in Cairo where the Baron castle is located, the Baron who built Heliopolis and gave it this special ambiance that no one can feel or know except its genuine residents. Heliopolis is an exquisite place, where you... More
