Travel to the world's greatest civilizations. With a history spanning nearly 3,000 years, the Ancient Egyptian civilization left a compelling legacy in the many monuments that have withstood the test of time. Ancient Egypt has long fascinated anthropologists as one of the world's six independently emerging civilizations, and it continues to draw visitors looking to discover mighty pyramids, impressive temples, sacred chambers, and treasure-filled tombs. Here's a highlight of the main attractions in Ancient Egypt.
If you are fascinated by Ancient Egypt history and monuments, Luxor is the first place you should visit once summer has ended and the heat has subsided.
Modern Luxor stands on the site of the Ancient Egyptian capital of Thebes and is home to dozens of Ancient Egyptian sites, including Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, and the Valley of the Kings and Queens.

Aswan in southern Egypt is a one-of-a-kind blend of Ancient Egypt, rural villages, urban cities, Nubian heritage, rivers, deserts, and modern history.
Nubia was an ancient land to the south of Aswan, extending from modern-day southern Egypt into northern Sudan. During the New Kingdom, Nubia became a part of Egypt, and Nubian heritage and culture are still very important in Aswan today.
The Nile appears to be as clear, blue, and wild as it did 3,000 years ago; Aswan is without a doubt Egypt's most beautiful Nile destination.
Because Aswan isn't particularly developed, don't expect a wide range of accommodations, restaurants, or nightlife - instead, go there to sightsee at a leisurely pace and enjoy the Nile and warm autumn weather.

The Great Temple of Abu Simbel, located in Nubia near Egypt's southern border, is one of Egypt's most impressive monuments. It was carved into the living rock around 1264 BC by King Ramesses II (the Great) of the Nineteenth Dynasty. The four imposingly seated colossal statues that dominate the temple's façade are its most well-known feature. An ancient earthquake caused one of these to collapse, and its fragments can still be seen on the ground.
The sun is perpendicular to the face of the statue of Ramses II in Abu Simbel twice a year, the first on the occasion of his birthday on October 22.
The second is the anniversary of his coronation on February 22 as King of Egypt.
