Places to Visit in Egypt

Egypt is often only associated with the Great Pyramids of Giza, but there are many more worthwhile places to visit in Egypt. For a classic Egyptian itinerary, many will opt for a few days each in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan, Egypt’s most famous and visited areas.

Places to visit

Starting in the capital of Cairo and surrounds, overwhelm your senses with the bustling people, culture and way of life as you experience the famous Khan-el-Khalili bazaar, the Egyptian Museum, and the Islamic centre of the country, watching the city come to life along the Nile at night. Venture outside the city to see the great pyramids and watch the structures develop through history at Sakkara and Dahshur. Spend time in both Luxor and Aswan, by car or by cruise, delving into hidden tombs and massive temples. For a more robust historical experience, spend a day in Alexandria, Egypt’s only Mediterranean port city characterized by Greco-Roman landmarks and old-world eateries. Round out your experience with world-class snorkelling, diving, and relaxation in Sharm El Sheik or Hurghada, Egypt’s premier Red Sea beach resorts.
