Central Downtown CairoOur school in the most well known location in   Downtown Cairo among  the commercial heart of the modern city of Cairo,   Nile Ritz Carlton. The other imposing building on Midan Tahrir opposite the Egyptian museum, is the bay-fronted government Moga'maa building opened in 1952 which houses the bureaucratic offices, and where visitors can renew or extened their Egyptian visas. Although lacking in obvious tourist "attractions", Downtown is nonetheless the convenient location of many smaller hotels, retail outlets, travel agencies and restaurants that would be of interest to the most of our students .

The district's central location makes it, together with Midan Tahrir, a natural "jumping off point" for exploration of the

city. The east end of Downtown is marked by Midan Ataba, the starting point of Islamic Cairo.
