Bridge across the Nile at Edfu - Idfu

Bridge across the Nile at Edfu

Bridge across the Nile at Edfu

There is a bridge across the Nile in Edfu. I was nearly surprised how low it was! Though our boat wasn’t very high with its 4 decks, when it was passing by the bridge a sailor had to incline the aerial that it had not touched the arches of the bridge.

Horse Carriages - Fiacres in Edfu - Idfu

Horse Carriages - Fiacres in Edfu

Horse Carriage - Fiacre

As the temple is on the distance of several kilometers from the bank of the Nile right after leaving boats tourists may see numerous horse carriages - fiacres. For the majority of tourists it appears a pleasant and unexpected surprise.

You will agree, that the trip by a fiacre is much more attractive, than a trip by a usual excursion bus. East color penetrates you literally during a trip and you become the accomplice of traffic in which besides you tens others horse and donkey carriages participate. The trip lasts about ten minutes - exactly so much to take pleasure and do not get tired.

You may see Egyptian fiacres in Edfu on my Edfu Fiacre 2,20 minute VIDEO CLIP from my YouTube channel .

Edfu (Idfu) harbor - Idfu

Edfu (Idfu) harbor

Edfu (Idfu) harbor

Cruise boats, which begin their way from Luxor to Aswan, usually make their first stop in Edfu early in the morning.

When we have moored to the bank at Edfu harbor, about ten moored boats already stood there. They are usually moored to each other. Therefore several chains of three - four boats in each were moored along the bank of the Nile. Last come boat becomes the last moored in a chain. Therefore passengers consistently pass by decks of 2-3 boats before to step on the bank. In process of returning tourists after the excursion to their boats, they leave the mooring. Therefore tourists get on the boat from the mooring at once while other boats still wait for the passengers.
