Luxor

3.9
A monumental number of archaeological relics from ancient Egypt remain evident in Luxor, the former capital of the New Kingdom. Once known as Thebes, the city straddles the banks of the Nile River and features an intriguing blend of modern buildings intertwined with ruins of temples and tombs from antiquity. Besides exploring a treasure trove of historic remnants and artifacts, your Luxor itinerary can include cruising on the Nile, haggling with vendors in one of the traditional souks, or checking out the local cuisine, especially hailed for its vegetarian dishes. Luxor is in Nile River Valley. Plan your trip to Luxor and other Egypt destinations using our handy Egypt tour itinerary planner.
