I spent 2 weeks in Egypt. It was a fantastic experience. The people were very friendly. I went on an organized tour.It was not expensive. I would highly suggest seeing Cairo,Luxor,and Abu Simbel.
I have spent 2 weeks in italy. We rented a car. it was not difficult to drive in Italy. We visited Rome,Venice,Florence,Milan,Tuscany,Pompeii, and Naples. If you love ancient history,art,and church architecture, this is the place to visit.
I rented a car for 2 weeks. Driving on the left hand side of the road was rather challenging. I would advise automatic transmission. Made it to Scotland and Wales.
