Good place to spend your time in Nizwa. The fort tells you about the history of the country and the city and the souq (market) is great for shopping cheap antiques and collectibles or souvenirs. Overall a great place to enjoy a historic tour.

Great place to spend a few hours exploring including all the shops in the souq area. The fort has excellent English explanations and even locals doing demonstrations who are happy (or at least fine) with having their photos taken. The souq I liked much better...More
