De Lesseps’s House

Historic Building in Ismailia

Unfortunately, unless you're a guest of the Suez Canal Authority (the house is its private guesthouse), you can only admire the exterior of the one-time residence of the French consul to Egypt from the road outside. Inside the grounds de Lesseps’s private carriage has been encased in glass and remains in impeccable condition. The house is located near the corner of Sharia Ahmed Orabi.
