About Egypt

Egypt, a nation connecting the Middle East with northeast Africa, dates back to the time of the pharaohs. Millennium old ruins are situated along the fertile Nile river valley such as Giza's monumental Pyramids and Great Sphinx, Luxor's hieroglyph lined Karnak temple and Valley of the King's tombs. In the capital of Cairo, you can see Ottoman monuments, such as the Muhammad Ali Mosque and the Egyptian Museum that have a collection of antiques. The Mediterranean port of Alexandria is home to Greco-Roman ruins, such as Pompey's Pillar and Kom el Shoqafa's rock-cut catacombs. Biblical Mount Sinai and Red Sea beach resorts such as Sharm el-Sheikh, renowned for the coral reefs of Ras Mohammed National Park, lie on the Sinai Peninsula.
