Step Back In Time At The Mighty Temples of Luxor
Once home to the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, Luxor has been called the world’s greatest open-air museum and with good reason. Here you’ll find the incredible complexes at Karnak and Luxor and the Valley of the Kings is just a short drive away. Amazingly well-preserved, walking down the sphinx-lined boulevard into Karnak really is like stepping back in time; it’s easy to imagine yourself one of the ancient Egyptians who so revered this special place. Also be sure to spend some time in Luxor itself, a modern and typically chaotic Egyptian city.
