Cairo Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Let yourself fall under the charm of the thousand faces, multiple identities and striking contrasts of the Arab world's largest metropolis. From the Al-Azhar Mosque to the Khan al-Khalili (the souk), immerse yourself in the ambience of the Fatimid era: madrasas, mosques and beautiful houses with meshrebiyas. Discover, too, the Cairo of the Mamluks in the vicinity of the Saladin Citadel; wander through the quiet Coptic district before returning to the noisy, modern city centred on Midan Tahrir. Finally, the City of the Dead, a veritable city within the city, laid out in a gigantic cemetery, provides another change of scenery. And don't miss the prestigious Egyptian Museum.
