Egypt, one of the world’s oldest civilizations, is also one of the oldest vacation destinations, for early Greeks and Romans.There is a wealth of activities and sights, besides just the Pyramids and monuments. There is the Red Sea, romantic cruises down the Nile river, the grand opera, luxury hotels, five star dining, scuba diving, museums, hot spots for outings at night and more. It is a vibrant, bustling country full of life, sound and visual beauty.
One of the undisputed top attractions in Egypt are the Pyramids of Giza, just southwest of Cairo. Although in ruins, the ancient temple of Karnak is also a huge draw, representing the achievement of many years and generations of Egyptian builders. Cruising the Nile is also a very popular way to see Egypt. And of course the Egyptian Museum, home to artifacts from the final dynasties of Ancient Egypt, is definitely one of Cairo’s main attractions, including objects taken from Tutankhamen’s tomb and more than two dozen mummies from the time of pharaohs.
