Get Lost in Pharaonic History

The visible marvels of Egypt speak for themselves. But, its centuries-old mysteries are yet to be unearthed all across the land. Ancient Egyptian history defines the narrative of one of its most famous landmarks today: the legendary Pyramids of Giza. The pharaonic megaliths awe with the myriad mysteries they nestle as much as their magical atmosphere. And, they are among the best places to visit in Egypt. Not far away, Sakkara has charm in spades with its vast desert studded with pyramids and tombs. It is the chief necropolis of Ancient Egypt and the birthplace of many of its burial practices. Resting upon the laurels of Ramesses II, Abu Simbel Temple is another royal masterpiece, all stark and beckoning in Aswan.

Taste the Elixir of the Nile

From Luxor all the way to Aswan, the banks of the dreamlike Nile host the most spectacular temples and monuments. This is where the best places to visit in Egypt cluster. Visit the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings and Queens before cruising down the luminous waters of the Nile. Have a glimpse into the Nubian culture in the villages, watch the Egyptian land change color, and explore some signature sights like Kom Ombo and the Temple of Horus. They are further insights into Pharaonic history. As you approach the First Cataract, Philae Temple will appear as arguably the most graceful sight in the Nile Cruise.

Revel in Egypt’s Best Cities

With tales of the living and the dead, Egypt certainly has a wilder side. But, its soulful cities are as worthwhile as its ancient wonders. Dive deep into the sensuous streets of Coptic Cairo, and see how ancient heritage is still deeply intertwined in the daily life of locals. Here, culture is so raw that you can feel it with your bare hands. Another highlight, Alexandria may have a fresh-faced skyline, but its roots rest in antiquity. Visit where the ancient wonder Pharos Lighthouse once stood. For the ultimate cultural diversion, Dahab is the place to be. In Egypt’s gate to the Red Sea, it is all about boundless relaxation and sea adventures.
