Sightseeing in Egypt

Sightseeing in Egypt

Historic wonders are a given in Egypt. However, there’s a whole world of things to do, with plenty of surprises along the way. 

  • The Great Pyramids of Giza are among the world’s most famous landmarks. After discovering the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of Menkaure, venture into the surrounding desert to see temple ruins and tombs. 
  • Among the world’s largest sculptures is the Great Sphinx of Giza. According to the most common theory, it was built for Pharaoh Khafre around 2600 BC. 
  • Located on the West Bank of the Nile, the Valley of the Kings is a resting ground for Egypt’s ancient kings. More than 60 intricately decorated tombs lie beneath the arid valley. 
  • Dating back to 1392 BC, the massive Luxor Temple is located in the modern town of the same name. It’s one of the globe's largest outdoor museums.
  • The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities holds an astounding collection of ancient artefacts. You’ll see Tutankhamun treasures, mummies, jewellery and so much more. 
  • Karnak was the key place of worship during the New Kingdom. Explore the incredible complex of obelisks, sanctuaries and kiosks, along with the famous Temple of Amun.  
  • The Great Temple of Ramses II and the Temple of Hathor complete the extraordinary Abu Simbel Temple Complex. They were famously saved from floodwaters via an engineering feat in the 1960s.
  • Opened by a British charity in the year 2000, the ACE Centre offers free treatment for the country’s working animals. You can tour the hospital and the stables to meet the residents.  
  • One of the five wives of Ramses II, Nefertari was known as his favourite and the most beautiful. Her tomb, in the Valley of the Queens, is a fitting display of lavish adornment. 
  • UNESCO-listed St Catherine’s Monastery was founded in around 330 AD and now contains a museum. It was built beside what was thought to be the burning bush where God spoke to Moses.
