It is not a fancy street but it is really historical where you can discover the fine Islamic art. Well worth a visit, and only minutes away from the Khan khalili Market.Try and go at night to see all the buildings lite up. Its a walk though time for sure.

Go and enjoy walking among the old architecture and smell the fragrant of history!....but avoid going there during the official holidays and week ends (it became so crowded).

It is a very nice walk that will show some islamic monuments and old cairo history as it used to be the old capital. Make sure to have a guide and to bargain when buying any souvenirs. PS, mosques are open till 5 pm so make sure to be there @1 pm maximum to get the best of this walk... More

Go there to discover how cairo was looks before I prefer to go there after midnight It's magical time there Little people so you can enjoy the atmosphere Nice views with little lights But go there with groups and let Egyptians deal with sales men if you want to buy something

I didn't know about Muizz street and generally didn't want to go to the poor areas of Cairo, but somehow I discovered this on the Internet while we were in Cairo just one day before our departure, and so we went. We went without any guides, armed with our knowledge from the Internet. We began by Bab Al-Futuh, walked all... More

Mu'izz Street is a spectacular sight! You don't have to be a history buff to appreciate the old architecture and ornate symmetrical carvings everywhere. The road is blocked off to most traffic (they let some motorcycles through) and the street is made of cobblestones. We went in the evening, unfortunately the mosques were all locked and Bayt As Suhaymi and... More

It is clean, full of life, specially at night where you can see the colourful lights decorating old houses, mosques and khans (old name for markets) on booths sides of the street. It is like a mile long or so. So unique buildings, you may take from 2 to 3 hours to cover it. Walking there makes me feels like... More
