The ancient Egyptian temples of Karnak and Luxor make up the largest religious complex ever built. Their size and their scope are breath-taking, as was the more than 30 generations of kings and workers who dedicated their lives to their construction. Visit the Luxor temples and you will feel like an ant beside the towering columns, and you will be awestruck by the majesty and the history.
Egypt’s Valley of the Kings offers a fascinating glimpse into the ancient obsession with death and the afterlife. Visit Tutankhamun’s tomb and the magnificent mortuary temple of Hatshepsut. Wander silently through the brightly coloured chambers that once contained mountains of gold. Don’t forget to look down for a glimpse at some ancient litter, and to look up at the incredible colour of the sky.
