Egypt, home of the Pharoahs and the Pyramids
In 430 BC, when the Historian Herodotos exclaimed in awe over the magnificent monuments in Egypt, many of them were already 2500 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. No country on earth boasts a longer recorded history than does Egypt, the Eternal 'Gift of the Nile' as described by Herodotus . A statement as true as today as it has been through seventy centuries of Egypt's Extraordinary history.
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. Egypt is one of the most amazing places you will ever visit. Even after seeing pictures of the pyramids, tombs and sights millions of times on TV, in books, and in magazines they are still awe inspiring in person.
