Egypt is a country of magnificent scope: you’d be hard-pressed to see all its famous sights in one holiday, and most visitors choose either to explore the awe-inspiring monuments and tombs of Ancient Egypt or make for the beach resorts on the Red Sea and Sinai Peninsula.

Ancient Egypt was one of the earliest and most enduring civilisations in history, spanning more than 5,000 years. It’s considered to have provided the building blocks for Greek and Roman culture, and thus influenced all of Western tradition.

Those interested in Egyptology can visit the Great Pyramid of Giza complex and the Great Sphinx, and view the vast amount of treasures in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, before embarking down the Nile and stopping at Luxor Temple – often called the world’s greatest open-air museum – and the Valley of the Kings.
