Egyptian sphinx
An enduring attraction since Roman times, the monuments of ancient Egypt remain as astounding today as they were during Cairo’s heyday as one of the greatest Arab cities in the world. Wander through tombs at the Valley of the Kings and Queens, their majestic painted walls still as vibrant as they were when the tombs were sealed over 300 years ago, then on to the Cairo Museum to view the astounding grave goods.   Explore the labyrinth of streets, alleys and markets in Coptic Cairo, visit the magnificently decorated Islamic Mosques, journey onwards to Aswan and discover the beautiful temples of Abu Simbel and Philae, then on to Luxor to the elegant temple complex of Karnak.
