Cairo is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Middle East due to the memorable and unique Coptic and Islamic tourist sites on its land. It is blessed with magnificent weather but the best time for visiting it is in spring because it becomes very cool. Most of the tourists prefer starting their tour in Egypt from Cairo since it can be reached by air through Cairo International Airport and linked with the neighboring governorates with highways and railways that facilitate moving from it to any other place throughout Egypt. El Muiz Street is the heart of Cairo that is renowned for the wide range of Islamic Monuments such as Sabil-Kuttab, Mosques, Khanqah, and Wikala since it was center of rule in the Fatimid Period. With its gracefully decorated Minarets, Marble inlaid open courtyard, and attractive Islamic decorations ornamenting its aisles, El Azhar Mosque is a landmark in El Muiz Street. Another mosque to stop at is El Muayyad Sheikh Mosque with its beautiful ablution in the center of its open courtyard and its Minarets over Bab Zuwayla with their unique Ottoman style of decoration. Most of the tourists prefer visiting El Muiz Street before leaving for seeing such fascinating Mamluk and Ottoman monuments and also shopping for souvenirs and handmade works in Khan El Khalil and Darb Saada. Everywhere in this street one can find small stalls selling alabaster statues, papyrus papers, baskets, wall hangings, gold works and cotton products at good prices. In addition to that there are many alleys off El Muiz Street involving workshops for many historic handcrafts such as copper and brass plates and tent making. This makes the area of Khan El Khalili and El Muiz Street one of the most recommended places to be visited in Egypt. The Coptic Compound in Old Cairo with its gracefully decorated Coptic monuments and the large number of churches and synagogues is another remarkable tourist attraction in Cairo. On top of the places to be visited there comes the Hanging Church that is highly admired for the fascinating architectural style in addition to its great history and religious value. There are many other places such as Ben Ezra Synagogue and The Greco-Roman Museum.
