"In the presence of Kings (and Queens)" Luxor by DSwede
Luxor Travel Guide: 1,625 reviews and 4,457 photos
Luxor is a wonderful city to experience the ancient mysteries of Egypt. The Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, the Temple of Luxor and other smaller sites including Thebes are littered around the area.
You can easily fly in from Cairo. Or if you are on a river cruise this will be the likely port of call between Al Karnak and Isna.
- Pros:There are visible strata of where new is built on old. A place where history is truly alive.
- Cons:Ever increasing popularity and tourist travel. The off season is maybe the only time to have some peace.
- In a nutshell:IMO, second most worthy city in Egypt worth a visit. Should spend a minimum of 2 days.
Smaller than the Valley of the Kings, but in my opinion, more inspiring due to its placement in the mountain and equally... more travel advice
