Luxor is the ancient city of Thebes, the great capital of Egypt during the new kingdom. Luxor also known as the city of 100 gates, has a third of the most monuments in the world and there are many places to visit in Luxor itself and around.
The city of Luxor consists of two parts, the eastern mainland (city of living) where there were palaces of kings and people’s houses, and the western mainland (city of the death), where there are graves and funerary temples, and both mainlands separated by the River Nile.
Luxor, like other major cities, offers a plethora of Luxor Tours. The Valley of the Kings, an archaeological site with over 60 tombs and burial chambers, is one of the most famous places in Egypt. The Luxor area also includes Karnak, a huge complex of temple ruins.
Finish your trip to Luxor by visiting the Luxor Temple, Medinet Habu Temple, and the Valley of the Queens, which has 90 burial sites devoted to female monarchs and accompanies the Valley of the Kings.
