  Luxor westbank, old village of Gurna
by sachara

Luxor and surroundings, ancient Thebes, is one great open air museum.
Hire a bike and take the boat to the westbank.
The scenery of the green fields and the desert mountains is fantastic. Old villages like Gurna with hidden tombs are amazing.

Places not be missed:
Medinet Habu
Temple of Hatshepsut
Tombs of the Kings, Queens and Nobles.
The tomb of Nefertary is the best. For some people the visit is a very emotional experience.

For more information see my Luxor page.
