Cairo Tower

Cairo tower is one of the landmarks of Cairo. Built in 1961 the 187m high lotus shaped tower looks over most of the city from its location in the heart of Cairo on the Gezeera island in Zamalek district. Cairo tower is higher than the great pyramid of Giza by 43 meters and it was built in the era of Gamal Abd El Nasser as a symbol of modern Egypt a few years after the 1952 revolution.

For 20 Egyptian pounds you can go to the top of the tower in the elevator to see most of Cairo using telescopes installed on the tower roof. There is also a restaurant at the top which rotates to be able to see the view from all sides while you eat.

The area where Cairo tower is located is full of restaurants, coffee shops and other entertainment places where you can enjoy before or after visiting the tower. A soft drink may cost you around 10 Egyptian pounds.

We recommend that you visit this wonderful place if you have a chance to come to Cairo and you will have a splendid time. Don't forget to take a few good shots to keep for your memory.
