Head up Cairo Tower to gain impressive views of the city below. A landmark of the capital and the country since its completion in 1961, the latticed concrete communications tower was the tallest structure on the continent for a decade, standing at a height of 187 m (614 ft). Though its record-setting days are over, the tower still represents one of the best places in town from which to admire the architecture and sprawl of the city, with its observation deck offering extensive views across the urban area. Put Cairo Tower and other Cairo attractions into our Cairo trip itinerary planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • One the highest places in Cairo, Egypt from which you can have an enchanted panoramic view of the whole city. It's suitable for enjoying the sunset. It has two restaurants, one them is a 360 degrees rotating restaurant.
  • The view is awesome, however the crowd makes you anxious. So if you want to make the best of your experience avoid vacations, public holidays, etc. And if you ever find crowded pay extra money which is 75EGYt for the coffee and will not have to wait in the line.
