Overnight in Cairo.
On arrival in Luxor we will visit Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Hatshepsut.
Karnak is an extraordinary complex of sanctuaries, kiosks, pylons and obelisks dedicated to the Theban triad but also to the greater glory of pharaohs. The site covers more than 2 sq km; it’s large enough to contain about 10 cathedrals. At its heart is the Temple of Amun, the earthly ‘home’ of the local
god. Built, added to, dismantled, restored, enlarged and decorated over nearly 1500 years, Karnak was the most important place of worship in Egypt during the New Kingdom.
Luxor Temple was built by Amenhotep but completed by Tutankhamun and Horemheb and then added to by Rameses II. The temple has been in almost continuous use as a place of worship right up to the present day. During the Christian era, the temple’s hypostyle hall was converted into a Christian church, and the remains of another Coptic church can be seen to the west.
Only recently opened to the public, the Avenue of Sphinxes or The King’s Festivities Road, also known as Rams Road 2.7 km long avenue which connects Karnak Temple with Luxor Temple. It was uncovered in the ancient city of Thebes (modern Luxor), with sphinxes and ram-headed statues lined
up on both flanks.
During Egypt’s New Kingdom, the Valley of the Kings became a royal burial ground for pharaohs such as Tutankhamun, Seti I, and Ramses II, as well as queens, high priests, and other elites of the 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasties. Discovered by Howards Carter in an excavation expedition in 1922, one of the most important tombs found in the Valley of the Kings is the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun and all his treasures.
The Temple of Hatshepsut is considered to be a masterpiece of ancient architecture. Take time to wander round this most astonishing of temples and remember the enigmatic and powerful woman who built it.
Tonight, we will board our 5-star cruise ship (embarkation times may vary)
During our four-day cruise, we will visit Kom Ombo and Edfu. Alternatively, relax on the ship and watch the world go by…
Built to overlook the Nile, the dual design of Kom Ombo Temple is dedicated to Sobek and Horus and is perfectly symmetrical along its main axis. It is one of the more unusual temples in Egypt. Due to the conflict between Sobek and Horus, the ancient Egyptians felt it necessary to separate their temple spaces within one temple. The Kom Ombo temple has two entrances, two courts, two colonnades, two Hypostyle halls and two sanctuaries, one side for each god.
The Temple of Edfu is the second largest temple in Egypt. It is also known as the Temple of Horus (the falcon-headed God) and it is the most beautiful and well-preserved of all the Egyptian temples.
Cruise itinerary may vary due to sailing times.
