Holidays to Luxor
Luxor is the kind of place you probably dream about when you think of a holiday to Egypt. The city was built on the site of one of the ancient capitals of Egypt, and as such, it is awash in breathtaking monuments. Here you could spend days wandering the ancient temples and tombs, and still not see it all. Stay in Luxor to enjoy modern amenities and historical wonders right at your doorstep.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Luxor
The Temples of Luxor is a sight you simply cannot miss on a holiday to Luxor, as it lies in the middle of the modern city. This impressive sandstone structure features massive colonnades, obelisks, and statues, and the chambers inside reveal fascinating wall carvings and inscriptions. Visitors can wander freely around the massive open air museum, taking in the colossal stone Pharaohs and towering walls of the temples.
Another historically significant spot that should not be missed on a holiday to Luxor is the Valley of the Kings, on the west bank of the Nile. From the 16th century BC through to the 11th century BC, this dusty valley was where the powerful Pharaohs of Egypt were buried in tombs carved out of the rocks. This is the very same valley where the world-famous tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered. Today, visitors can explore a number of these burial chambers where kings once rested.
Besides the fabulous archaeological sites, Luxor also offers many exciting activities for travellers. Start the day with a hot air balloon ride over the city to see the monuments from a bird’s eye view. After a long day touring the temples and tombs, cool off in your hotel pool with a chilled drink, before heading out for a tasty meal of mezze and grilled lamb. For a romantic evening on the water, take a traditional felucca boat ride along the Nile as the sun sets over the city.
