"Luxor should be on most people's "Bucket Lists", with so much history and culture dating back to 3500 BC..."
Luxor is sometimes nicknamed the world’s greatest open-air museum, a nickname
that it more than lives up to. It is the closest modern city to Ancient Thebes,
where the size and grandeur of the monuments that survive will take your breath
On the west bank of the Nile, the Valley of the Kings is dotted with tombs of
Pharaohs, including that of Tutankhamen, while close by is the Valley of the
Queens, Temple of Hatshepsut and the massive Colossi Memnon. Nile Cruises
usually start at Luxor and sail to Aswan and back, making Luxor an ideal place
to enjoy a stay on dry land before or after your cruise down the Nile. Along
with the vast Temple of Karnak, which plays host to a vast array of incredible
Egyptian statues and monuments. This coupled with the excellent weather and good
tourist facilities is the ideal
break, making it a must-visit for anyone that loves history or sightseeing.
