Logo   Where to Go in Egypt


Essential to any visit, Egypt's capital city on the Nile in Lower Egypt has a wealth of history, art and culture, not to mention the Pyramids of Giza on the outskirts.

Egypt's Mediterranean port city was famous for its culture and learning, but there's also the seafood....

A visit to this great oasis in the Western Desert gives you a very different view of Egypt.

Nile Cruises
You can visit Middle and Upper Egypt by land...but why? The Nile is Egypt's "great road," and the way to travel it is the same way the pharaohs and Cleopatra did: by boat. More...

Middle Egypt
Delightfully less visited than Lower or Upper Egypt, Middle Egypt is where you can get away from the crowds and off the beaten path for some exploring on your own.

Luxor & Thebes
Every kilometer of the Nile has its fascinations, but the heart of Upper Egypt is in Luxor, with its great temples, and across the Nile in Thebes, burial-place of the pharaohs.

Long a winter resort because of its agreeable climate, Aswan is smaller and quieter than Luxor, and the jumping-off point for visits to vast Lake Nasser.

Abu Simbel
Threatened by the rising waters of Lake Nasser after construction of the Aswan High Dam, the great temple of Ramses II was raised and relocated, and again its gigantic statues gaze across the desert...and lake. More...

Red Sea
Everyone has heard of the great diving from the beaches at Sharm el-Sheik on the Red Sea. Sea for yourself!
