Once the capital of the sultanate, Nizwa stands as one of the longest-established urban areas in the country, and has retained its traditional core.
Explore hidden gems such as Al Thowarah Hot Springs and Aflaj Irrigation Systems of Oman. Step out of Nizwa to go to Nakhl and see Nakhal Fort, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Nizwa Fort Oman, don't miss a visit to Birkat Al Mouz Ruins, admire the landmark architecture of Tanuf Ruins, and contemplate the long history of Falaj Daris Park.

Plan my day in Nizwa using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Muscat International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in June, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can drive to Al Hamra.
