Stroll around Tahrir Square, a local landmark and meeting place, originally built in the 19th century.

In more recent history, the square was the center of the 2011 revolution that brought about the end of President Hosni Mubarak's rule. View the statue of Omar Makram, the nationalist hero who resisted Napoleon I, and use the square as a starting place for exploration of the city center.

  • Tahrir Square has major importance in the politics of modern Egypt. Half a kilometre away from the Egyptian Museum, cruises for evening dinner and other government offices. It has one of the busiest bus stop offering bus services to all the major sites in the city and country. Travellers can find numerous restaurant and travel agents and tour offices in its vicinity. It always has heavy traffic plan accordingly.
