Travelers have marveled at
archaeological wonders for centuries, ever since the Ancient
Greeks visited the pyramids. Today, the ancient wonders attract
millions of tourists each year to the pyramids, temples, mosques
and great monuments of the Nile Valley, as well as the stunning
diving resorts of the Red Sea.
In 430 BC, when Herodotos exclaimed in awe
over the magnificent monuments in Egypt, many of them were
already 2,500 years old. Most, from the pyramids of Giza to the
astonishingly beautiful temples of Karnak or Philae, or the
painted tombs in the Valley of the Kings, can still be visited
today. The sheer age of this great civilisation is mind-blowing.
The life-giving Nile pours across the map,
feeding an emerald ribbon of irrigated fields adjacent to
villages shaded by date palms. Whether on a cruise ship or
traditional felucca, life on the water is a constant visual
feast, while the few huge, dusty cities(Cairo, Alexandria, Aswan
and Luxor) are a babble of exotic sounds and smells.
