On the banks of the River Nile, Aswan lures travelers with its centuries-old charm.

Aswan sights

Egypt’s southernmost city Aswan awaits at the First Cataract of the River Nile, offering a tranquil getaway with its picturesque Nubian villages and peaceful skies. A commercial center for centuries, the city has a lot to offer in terms of diverse culture. Aswan’s soothing modern-day look covers a history of strategic importance and fierce territorial battles between the Nubian people and ancient Egyptians. The traces of Nubian culture still dominate the colorful streets and busy markets, making Aswan a unique sight among other Egyptian cities.

The southern frontier is also home to the most glorious monuments of Pharaonic history. The famous Abu Simbel temples and the island temple of Philae are only two of Aswan’s classical Egyptian sites. There is more to discover on the islands and the banks of the Nile.

When sunset paints the land in flaming colors, the city hosts ethereal views of lit feluccas and cruisers as they glide on holy waters. With its authentic serenity and profound history, Aswan is truly a wonder of the legendary Nile.
