Yemen Things to Do: 143 reviews and 301 photos


Most hotels in the Old Town of Sanaa give free access to their roof where you can make exceptional photos of the Old Town architecture.

The "Gallery no. 1" in the Old Town is located in a "samsarat" (=former trading post) with a great view on Sanaa as well, especially at night.

You can climb on the ramparts of the "Bab al Yemen". There is an entrance to an art gallery on the left-hand side (seen from the city), the stairs to the right lead above. Here you have a fascinating look on the chaotic Suk.
