Stone Town

Stone Town’s jumble of streets are a riot of colour, with lively markets and historic buildings, heavy with the aroma of rich spices. Too narrow for cars, the streets are a delight to explore on foot, immersed in the buzz of daily life, with women haggling for exotic fruits and vibrant textiles and children playing in the ornately carved doorway of a pastel-hued house.

Dating back to the 19th century, the old town offers a fascinating glimpse into the city’s trading past, with mosques, palaces and cathedrals in a diverse melange of architectural influences, including Arab, Indian and Swahili.
