The art, architecture, and archaeological wonders of the eastern Mediterranean are legacies of the world’s most celebrated empires. Over the millennia, a succession of cultures traded, conquered, and settled in these fabled lands, and we follow in their wake, piecing together the pages of the defining chapters of ancient civilization.
As welcoming and proud a country as it has ever been, Egypt brims with ancient fortresses and monasteries, mosques and madrassas, and, perhaps lesser known, brilliant coral reefs and kaleidoscopic tropical fish in the Red Sea. Tourists as far back as the ancient Greeks and Romans have marveled at prehistoric rock art, imposing pyramids, and towering Pharaonic temples. Today’s visitors delve deep into the region’s history as they tour desert monasteries and ages-old churches in the desert, visit Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, sink into a hot spring in the Siwa Oasis, and sail the Nile to Dendara, Edfu, and other waterside temples. Discoveries are de rigeur here—you never know what treasure is around the next bend.
