located in Upper Egypt Luxor. It has been described as the world’s biggest open-air museum. Nowadays it has been elevated to the status of Governorate, though it is still classified as being in the province of Qena. It has a population of round about 230,000, most of who are employed in tourism somehow, though there are many who are employed in agriculture and commerce. It is one of the most popular destinations in Egypt, being one of those places that you must see. Because of this almost every tourist company has an office somewhere in the town.

It has been estimated that Luxor contains about a third of the most valuable monuments and antiquities in the whole world, which makes it one of this planet’s most important tourism sites. Monuments such as The Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple, the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, Deir El-Bahri (the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut), the workers village at Deir El-Medina, the list goes on and on and on. Though most visitors will stay for just a few days, it would take a substantial amount of time to visit everything in this amazing town.

Once known as Thebes, Luxor’s importance in ancient Egyptian history cannot be denied. It was the religious capital for almost all of the Pharaonic period which is why the town is dominated by the two temples; The Temple of Luxor, and the immense Temple of Karnak; the world’s largest temple complex. Most people know that Luxor was once Thebes, but “Thebes” was not what the ancient Egyptians called it. Ancient texts show that it was called t-apt, which means “the shrine”, with the ancient Greeks calling it tea pie. The Arabs had problems with pronunciation and so it became Thebes to them. The name vanished then as the area submitted to the desert and then by the 10th century Arab travellers thought the ruins were of grand buildings so started to call it Al-Oksour, or “site of the palaces” which slowly became Luxor.

Hatshepsut temple

The Temple of Deir el-Bahri is magnificently situated at the foot of the sheer cliffs fringing the desert hills, the light-colored, almost white, sandstone of the temple standing out prominently against the golden yellow to light brown rocks behind. The temple complex is laid out on three terraces rising from the plain, linked by ramps, which divide it into a northern and a southern half. Along the west side of each terrace is a raised colonnade.

Valley of the Kings

The famed Valley of the Kings, hidden between rocky escarpments, was the final resting place for the kings of the 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasties. Their main attraction is their wonderfully vivid wall paintings. Since it was believed that the dead man, accompanied by the sun god (or perhaps having become one with the sun god) sailed through the underworld at night in a boat, the walls of the tombs were adorned with texts and scenes depicting this voyage and giving the dead man instruction on its course. Within the valley are 63 tombs that are a roll-call of famous names of Egyptian history including the famous boy-king Tutankhamun. The tombs are open on a rotation system to preserve the paintings as much as possible from the damage caused by humidity

Karnak Temple

Dedicated to Amun Ra, the Temple of Karnak was constantly expanded by successive pharaohs, each adding his, or her, tribute to the god. The site dates back to the Middle Kingdom under the reign of Mentuhotep (11th Dynasty), but most of what can be seen today is from the New Kingdom. Other parts of the complex include sites dedicated to Mut, the wife of Amun Ra, and their son Khonsu.

The Luxor Temple

Presiding over the modern downtown district, Luxor Temple is an ode to the changing face of Egypt through the centuries. Built first by Amenophis III (on the site of an earlier sandstone temple), it was known as "the southern harem of Amun" and was dedicated to Amun, his consort Mut, and their son the moon god Khons. Like all Egyptian temples, it comprises the chapels of the deities with their vestibules and subsidiary chambers, a large Hypostyle Hall, and an open Peristyle Court, which was approached from the north by a great colonnade.

Edfu temple

If you want to get to grips with the sheer scale and ambition of ancient Egypt's rulers, then a trip to Edfu, 110 kilometers south of Luxor and 112 kilometers north of Aswan, is a must. One of the Ptolemy Dynasty's most awesome feats of temple construction, Edfu's Temple of Horus has been keeping a beady eye on the Nile since the 2nd century BC. Compared to the temples and monuments elsewhere in Egypt, this attraction may be quite young in age, but its colossal sandstone walls covered in giant hieroglyphics and dazzling friezes ape the mammoth building works of earlier pharaohs, and its lesser age means it's one of the best preserved temples in the country. Here, you really get a feel for the all-encompassing power of Egypt's temples as you stroll under gateways and wander ant-like through hallways that seem to have been created for giants

Kom Ombo Temple

Set dramatically on the bank of the Nile, 47 kilometers north of Aswan and 168 kilometers south of Luxor, the soaring, chunky columns of the Great Temple of Kom Ombo are a magnificent sight as you arrive from the river. Dedicated to the gods Sobek and Haroeris, the temple's finely carved reliefs give a sense of this area's prominence as capital over the surrounding region during the Ptolemaic era. Today, Kom Ombo may be a sleepy agricultural backwater surrounded by sugar cane fields, but its prime position along the Nile once made it one of Upper Egypt's most important centers.

Aswan High Dam

Aswan High Dam is a rock-fill dam located at the northern border between Egypt and Sudan. The dam is fed by the River Nile and the reservoir forms Lake Nasser.

Unfinished Obelisk

The largest known ancient obelisk and is located in the northern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt. If finished it would have measured around 42 meters (120 feet) and would have weighed nearly 1,200 tons.

Abu Simbel

If you have time for only one day trip from Aswan, pick a visit to Abu Simbel. Built by Ramses II, and saved from destruction by a remarkable UNESCO rescue project in the 1970s, Abu Simbel is not only a triumph of ancient architecture, but also of modern engineering. The mammoth scale of the temple trumps everything else in Egypt and has to be seen to be believed.


Is the capital and largest city of Egypt. The city's metropolitan area is the largest in the Middle East and the Arab world, and the 15th-largest in the world. It is associated with ancient Egypt; as the famous Giza pyramid complex and the ancient city of Memphis that are located in its geographical area. Located near the Nile Delta, modern Cairo was founded in 969 CE by the Fatimid dynasty. Today the city is the site of ancient national capitals whose remnants remain visible in parts of Old Cairo. Cairo has long been a center of the region's political and cultural life, and is titled "the city of a thousand minarets" for its preponderance of Islamic architecture. Cairo is considered a World City with a "Beta + classification according to GaWC. Has the oldest and largest film and music industry in the Arab world, as well as the world's second-oldest institution of higher learning, Al-Azhar University. Many international media, businesses, and organizations have regional headquarters in the city; the Arab League has had its headquarters in Cairo for most of its existence. With a population of 6.76 million spread over 453 square kilometers (175 sq mi), Cairo is by far the largest city in Egypt. An additional 9.5 million inhabitants live in close proximity to the city. Like many other mega-cities, suffers from high levels of pollution and traffic. Cairo's metro, one of the two major ones in Africa (the other in Algiers, Algeria), ranks among the fifteen busiest in the world, with over 1 billion annual passenger rides. The economy of Cairo ranked first in the Middle East in 2005, and 43rd globally on Foreign Policy's 2010 Global Cities Index.

The Egyptian Museum

In Cairo, Egypt, has a large collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the world. It has 120,000 items. The museum's Royal Mummy Room displays some mummies of New Kingdom kings and queens. Another large museum of Egyptian antiquities is the Egyptian Museum of Turin, which is the only museum other than the Cairo Museum that is dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture.


Alexander the Great founded it in 333BCE. Queen Cleopatra lorded over it. Alexandria's birth and early history is a calling card of famous names. This was the Mediterranean's dazzling jewel of a city; home to the Great Library of Alexandria and the colossal Pharos Lighthouse - one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Bibliotheca Alexandrina

A reimagining of Alexandria's ancient Great Library, this gorgeously designed cultural center contains a host of museums as well as one of the modern world's most ambitious libraries. Its architecture - a giant sun disk - presides over the waterfront Corniche, while inside, a huge reading room can hold eight million volumes. Below the main library, visitors can explore a range of beautifully curated exhibitions. The Manuscript Museum with its magnificent collection of ancient texts and scrolls and the Antiquities Museum with its Graeco-Roman antiquities and statuary found during underwater exploration in the harbor are the two prime attractions. But there are also rotating art exhibitions, a permanent Egyptian folk art collection, and a Science Museum and Planetarium that are aimed squarely at children.

Fort Qaitbey

Walk the long shorefront Corniche road heading west, and you'll finally arrive at Fort Qaitbey. It may be a poor substitute for what was once the site of the mighty Pharos Lighthouse - one of the seven wonders of the

El Montaza Palace

a palace, museum and extensive gardens in the Montaza district of Alexandria, Egypt. It was built by Khedive Abbas Hilmy (1892– 1914) on a low plateau east of central Alexandria overlooking a beach on the Mediterranean Sea.

St. Catherine Monastery

In 342 A.D The Empress Helena, mother of Constantine the Great, built a monastery, including the chapel known as the Virgin Mary, at the Burning Bush site; where it is believed that Moses received the two tablets. Justinian also ordered the building of a high enclosure wall, with towers to protect the monastery, and it is said that he provided it with 200 Roman soldiers to protect it against the attacks of the Bedouins. The monastery lies at the foot of "Moses Mountain", a beautiful site, on a high location about 1570 feet above sea level, with a good climate and plenty of fresh well water. To the west of it is the El-Raha Valley.

The Egyptian Museum

In Cairo, Egypt, has a large collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the world. It has 120,000 items. The museum's Royal Mummy Room displays some mummies of New Kingdom kings and queens. Another large museum of Egyptian antiquities is the Egyptian Museum of Turin, which is the only museum other than the Cairo Museum that is dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture.

Cairo Tower

Cairo Tower is the tallest freestanding concrete structure in Egypt and North Africa. The tower stands at 187 meters in Zamalek district on Gezira Island. It provides a 360° view of Cairo, along with the Giza Pyramids in the distance to the west.

Full day Old Cairo Tour * (9:30 Citadel of Saladin + 12:00 visit El-Moazz Street and El-Akmar Mosque and Fatimid School + 13:30 Lunch at Mahoney Restaurant + 16:30 City tour at Khan El-Khalily)

Full day Old Cairo & Egyptian Museum Tour * (9:30 Egyptian museum + 12:30 Lunch by the River Nile + 13:30 pm Old Cairo area (Coptic & Islamic) + 19:00 Nile Cruise Dinner

Alexandria National Museum

Inside, the collection guides you from the Pharaonic era (in the basement), to the Hellenistic heyday when Alexandria and Egypt were governed by the Ptolemy dynasty begun by Alexander the Great (on the ground floor), and up to the Byzantine and Islamic periods (on the 1st floor). As well as the displays, statuary, and antiquities unearthed in and around the city (including finds from underwater explorations in the area offshore), there are excellent map drawings that imagine what the classical city of Alexandria would have looked like.


Downtown Alexandria's wide waterfront road is as much a symbol of the city as any of its monuments. It's here that you get a real feel for the era of cosmopolitan elegance and decadence that marked this city in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Much of the architecture from this era still stands along the Corniche, though these days, much of it is heavily dilapidated and falling into disrepair. During your stroll check out the colonial remnants of the Cecil Hotel and Windsor Palace Hotel that are still the key harbor-side addresses for visitors who want to wallow in bygone-days ambience.

Kom el-Dikka

Nobody thought much of the ancient rubble mound in central Alexandria until, in 1947, they decided to clear the site to make way for new housing. Instead, the area known as Kom el-Dikka ("Mound of Rubble") revealed a whole swag of ancient ruins including a small Roman theater. Excavation work commenced, and today, this park area includes the remnants of a Ptolemaic temple and the mosaic flooring of a wealthy Roman-era dwelling now known as the Villa of the Birds.
