Worth a visit and a good place as a base for sight seeing. Don’t miss the Barons palace when it has finished its renovation.

Three of five of us were only there for a short time, but it is very walkable. Could really get out an explore. Traffic is not as wild as in Cairo except on the airport road.

Heliopolis is one of the most beautiful high class areas in Cairo, The beautiful French/Belgium architecture is one of the main reasons its so in demand in Cairo.

Korba, the real Heliopolis. Built by a Belgian Baron a hundred years ago, Baron Empain, whose tomb is in the Basilica, Korba. A European feel to this part of Cairo with beautiful buildings and balconies. Eat and drink in any of one hundred places!

Much of Cairo is old and in fairly run-down condition, and it was nice to see a more highly developed part of the city.
