Isna Travel Guide: 59 reviews and 240 photos

Though there are things to see in Esna, markets and Graeco-Roman ruins, we were just passing through on the way from Luxor upriver to Edfu.

Evading pirates and passing locks did make for an entertaining interlude along the journey through this area, though...

    Nice page Ken, those scarf sellers can be very persistent and it has paid off in their accuracy! I didn't know the Nile had locks below Aswan! A bit like the Douro in Portugal's famous Port wine region!!
