    When you get back from the tour to the Jebel Akhdar, you should visit this city of old and inhabited only by a few people. If coming from the Jebel Akhdar, the beautiful Fort of Birkat al Mauz, which is currently closed due to renovation is first to the left. Keep to the next left, until you can see the ruins of the city to the left side. It is advisable to Park, on the main road because the entrances to the old city are very close. It makes fun of the still partially inhabited city to stroll. Who is coming from the irrigation system would continue beyond the mountain, should wear absolutely sensible footwear.

Where to stay in Nizwa

Nizwa has relatively few accommodations to offer its guests, drawn to the historical core of the former capital. The relative lack of tourist infrastructure may well be what's keeping the traditional feel of the city center alive. A couple of standard hotels can be found in the center, and a few more in the towns to the north and south along Highway 21. The capital, Muscat, lies about an hour and a half's drive to the north-east along a good quality highway. Most visitors simply visit Nizwa during a day trip from the capital.
