Nizwa Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 85 photos


Nizwa is roughly a tour hour drive from Muscat and makes for an easy two day trip or if you have a car and don't mind getting up early you can make a day trip of it. The main highlight is Nizwa Fort which can be seen in around an hour...like other forts in Oman it is a bit lacking inside.

The Souq

the Souq is by far the higlight of Nizwa in my opinion. It is right next to Nizwa Fort so both can be seen in one day.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A great day trip
  • Cons:The fort is a bit lacking in content
  • In a nutshell:A great day trip from Muscat
