Al Azhar Park tour with lunch

Pick up in the morning or afternoon depending on your request then drive to the old part of cairo city where al azhar park is located Which was once a neglected expanse within one of Cairo’s oldest neighborhoods became one of Egypt’s most miraculous transformations. Funded by the Agha Khan Trust for Culture’s vision to make the world a better place, the Azhar Park became the first of its kind in the densely populated city.

This gorgeous, 74-acre rehabilitation project involved the propagation of over two million plants and trees. This is now a place the locals can extricate themselves from the rumble of car-crammed streets to stroll through a profusion of emerald grass and gushing fountains. Shaded walk-ways, stunning views, and a children’s play area makes this an ideal getaway for families and love-birds alike. Cairenes can enjoy a Lakeside picnic while feeding the ducks or can choose to pamper themselves in a number of the strategically situated restaurants. The Citadel View restaurant capitalizes on the park’s topography, granting diners an incredible view across the medieval city, including a view of the Citadel of course. For a less substantial investment, Alain Le Nôtre serves salads, wraps and ice cream, and the beautifully designed, half-floating Lakeside Cafe on the other side of the park serves a more modest Egyptian mezzeh.

Azhar Park is good for more than a new profile picture with dozens of surrounding attractions, some of which are a few minutes’ walk away. The list includes taking a walking tour of Old Cairo, visiting the famous mega-bazaar Khan el Khalili, catching a traditional tanoura dancing show in Wikala Al-Ghouri, exploring the grand Mohamed Ali Mosque, also known as the Citadel, and even visiting the Egyptian Museum and the Giza Pyramids. Then lunch there or on a Nile view restaurant with set menu, then drive you back to hotel.
