Aswan

3.9
Plan an Aswan holiday and treat yourself to ancient wonders of the past along the Nile River. Egypt's southernmost major tourist city along the ancient southern frontier offers a slow-paced feel with plenty of opportunity for short strolls along the corniche--a cliffside road--with the chance to watch sailboats glide by. The city is known for world's largest known ancient obelisk as well as other attractions, including artifacts dating back to pre-Dynastic times and rock-hewn tombs of Egyptian nobles. With our custom trip planner, Egypt vacations can be built around trips to Aswan and other destinations in Egypt.
