Egypt is one of the most popular holiday destinations, where resort complexes along the entire sea coast are being built and improved more and more intensively every year. Egypt is famous for its culture; it is not for nothing that there is a whole science – Egyptology. Therefore, a tourist will always find something to see in this prosperous tourist republic.

Of course, it is simply impossible to visit Egypt and not visit Luxor! After all, Luxor is a stunning city in its architecture. It was Luxor, and once it was called Thebe, that was the capital of the Upper Egyptian Kingdom, which was located upstream of the mighty Nile River.

Now Luxor is a modern city, which is certainly not in vain often called the “pearl of Egypt”, but its suburbs are a real open-air museum. Archaeological excavations do not stop in our time, which constantly leads to amazing finds of an ancient and previously unknown culture of the once mighty state.

Luxor is rightfully recognized as the world center of archeology, because you will not find such a city in the world, on the territory of which such a staggering number of ancient monuments would be concentrated. The famous tomb of Tutankhamun is also located in Luxor. In the vicinity of the city, you can visit the Luxor and Karnak temples, the Colossi of Memnon, the temple of Queen Hatshepsut. The City of the Living, as well as the City of the Dead, the Valley of the Kings are monuments of architecture and antiquity of unprecedented beauty.

Surprisingly, it is in Luxor that monuments of art from different historical eras are located, and besides, they are not far enough from each other, which makes it easy to visit them all. A trip to Luxor by plane will save you time and energy. You can get to this most interesting city from Sharm El Sheikh by plane on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The flight will be fast and as comfortable as possible. The departure time according to the airline’s schedule is around 06:00 in the morning, and already at 07:00 you find yourself on the threshold of the “City of a Hundred Gates”, full of energy and ready for new experiences.

Upon arrival, the tour begins on the West Bank of the Nile, to the famous Valley of the Kings, which is considered one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. This is one of the most popular necropolises of Ancient Egypt, which has more than 60 known tombs of the pharaohs.

One of the most impressive architectural monuments is the stepped temple of the queen-pharaoh Hatshepsut, which you will also definitely see. At lunch you will have an amazing opportunity to enjoy delicious local cuisine in the restaurant

After a little rest and renewed strength, we will continue the tour on the East Bank of the Nile. Vivid impressions will leave behind a visit to the world’s largest famous temple complex – Karnak. It is Karnak that is considered the most perfect embodiment of the cult ensemble.

In front of the temple, to this day, a part of an unusual alley, consisting of four stone sphinxes, has been preserved. These are absolutely identical and, moreover, equally distant from each other likenesses of the sacred animal god Amon, who has the body of a lion and the head of a ram.

There will also be an opportunity to see the Temple of the Gods of Amun, Mut and Khonsu – the magnificent Luxor Temple in the very center of Luxor. The ancient Egyptians called it “Ipet-resyt”, which means “Inner Chambers”.

Every year at the end of summer, when the mighty Nile overflowed its banks, and its water turned scarlet red, like blood, the Egyptians held the OPET festival, at which the images of the sun god Amun, his wife, the goddess of war, Mut, and their son, the moon god Khonsu, traveled in a pompous procession from Karnak Temple to Luxor.

It was believed that after long months of drought, the earth is renewed in order to give its fruits to people, and with it the God-king is also renewed. Now you can visit these once sacred places.

This tour comes to an end. We return to the airport and by 19:00, according to the schedule of airlines, we arrive in Sharm el-Sheikh.
