With sand-covered tombs, austere pyramids and towering Pharaonic temples, Egypt brings out the explorer in all of us. Visit the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, where Tutankhamun’s tomb was unearthed, and see the glittering finds in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Hop off a Nile boat to visit Dendara, Edfu or one of the other waterside temples, cross Lake Nasser to see Ramses II’s masterpiece at Abu Simbel, or trek into the desert to find the traces of Roman trading outposts.
In order to travel to Egypt, you will need a valid passport. If you have a passport, be sure to check it’s expiration date to insure you’ll be able to travel. If you do not currently have a passport, we recommend applying for one right now. Visit the U.S. Passport website now.
