Cairo/Midan Ramses Attractions & Activities - The Best Holiday Destinations for 2020

Midan Ramses is the name of the large square fronting Cairo's main railway station (Ramses Station - Mahattat Ramses)and Mubarak Metro Station and the district of streets and neighbourhoods surrounding it, located immediately north of the very centre of the modern city at Midan Tahrir. Ramsis train station is the capital of Egypt's main train station, and is the traveling gateway to the cities of the northern Delta and Mediterranean coast, and the upper Egyptian cities to the south. Destinations served on the rail network starting in Cairo heading north include Mansura, Zagazig, Suez, Ismailia, Port Said, Alexandria, Marsa Matrouh. And to the upper Egyptian cities south of Cairo including Giza, Assyut, Luxor and Aswan. Not the most attractive part of modern Cairo, Midan Ramses is notorious for swirling, raucous traffic, massive overpasses and crowds at peak hour, basically the Central traffic hub into and out of Cairo. Despite all this, the district does have some saving graces to offer the traveller. Midan Ramsis is a 25 minute walk from Midan Tahrir. By Metro take Sadat on Tahrir Sq, past Adbul Nasser, Orabi, onto Mubarak Metro Station.
