Luxor, once an Ancient Egyptian capital, is known today as the world’s greatest open-air museum. From the tomb of Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings and the magnificent sunset views at the majestic temple complexes of Karnak and Luxor to the exciting and fun Nile cruises.

This area is really dominated by the Luxor / Karnak / Thebes open-air museum, filled with awe inspiring monuments of ancient civilization as well as some of the best preserved as we set it was the capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom.
