Heliopolis area is over 100 years old with every thing you need around you . People here enjoy the authentic atmosphere and special characteristics . Walking around Korba area or sitting to have coffe is just relaxing and amazing.

I always stay in Heliopolis when visiting Cairo. This is an upper middle class city and the people are wonderful and helpful. It is close to Cairo International Airport. There is very good food there.

This neighborhood is over a century old. It had beautiful architecture, a mix of old Islamic and rustic French. There's an endless number of cafes and restaurants in the area. It's a very busy area, but you can always enjoy yourself there.
