From the pyramids and Great Sphinx of Giza to the hieroglyphic scrawls covering the walls of Luxor’s temples, Egypt’s ancient past leaps out at you wherever you go. Having explored the length of the country, our specialists know the most impressive sights in Egypt and can recommend the best places to go to see them.
Admire the treasures housed in Cairo’s Museum of Egyptian Antiquities before embarking on a Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan — the best way to take in the country’s ancient sites. Once in Aswan, you can explore the local Nubian culture, browse craft markets and watch feluccas sail by along the river. Afterwards, visit the relocated temples of Abu Simbel or head to the coast to snorkel around the Red Sea’s coral reefs.
