The Sphinx at the Giza-Plateau, in
the background on the left the Mykerinos Pyramid and on
the right the Chefren Pyramid, the Cheops Pyramid is a
little further on the right.
Already the entrance hall of the Egypt
Museum in Cairo is nearly packed with exhibits.
Here, like everywhere, you have to pay 1-2 Euros if you
want to take your camera (no flash), a video camera is
View at Cairo from Cairo-Tower. In
the opposite direction one can see the Pyramids in the
distance, but not very clear because of the smog.
The Karnak Temple is only a few
kilometers outside of Luxor. For visiting the Temple you
better plan with 2-3 hours.
The Luxor Temple (right inside the
town) was former connected with the Karnak Temple by
Sphinx Alley. Today one can see the alley only on a few
sites, because the town was build on top of it. At night
the temple is lit very nice, therefore I recommend to
visit it at nightfall.
Hatshepsut's Temple should be on
every tour and usually it is.
Note the massive crowds of
tourists on this and the other photos!
