No other city boasts as many well-preserved monuments from Ancient Egypt as Luxor.
Nearly 4,000 years of Egyptian culture fill every nook and cranny of Luxor. The main points of interest are Luxor Temple, located directly on the Nile, and the Karnak temple complex. Prepare to be wowed as you stride down the Avenue of the Sphinxes and admire the Great Hypostyle Hall in the Temple of Amun. The city with its imposing temples stands to the east of the Nile. On the western bank lies the famous Valley of the Kings with the royal crypts, including the tomb of Tutankhamun. Centrally located on the riverfront promenade, Steigenberger Nile Palace is an ideal home base for exploring Luxor.
