The story of Egypt is written on a ribbon of time that tells tales both grand and small, past and present – from the reigns of pharaohs to the fate of the farmer who still tends his plot of land with plow and ox, just as his father and his father’s father. Egypt travel invites discovery from the extravagant pyramids of Giza, to the royal tombs in the Valleys of the Kings and the Queens, to legendary cities of Cairo and Alexandria. The heart of this ancient world is the fabled Nile River, graced with tall red dunes and dotted with palm trees and patches of greenery. One need only set sail aboard one of the new luxury ships to experience the grandest monuments from Aswan to Luxor – the masterpiece rock-cut temples of Abu Simbel; Aswan’s High Dam; Temple of Philae, dedicated to Isis the Great Mother; and the statues and sanctuaries of Ramses II and his young queen, Nefertari. While many nations are blessed with archeological treasures, few can compare to extraordinary Egypt, still a preeminent destination for scholars and students, archeologists and travelers, and for all who are fascinated with the history of humankind.
