Luxor , The World’s Greatest Open-air Museum

Luxor is unique among the cities of the world. Wherever you tread, you feel you are experiencing the past and the present at one and the same time

it is a Governorate in Upper (southern) Egypt. There is hardly a place in the city that does not have a relic that tells of the grandeur of the Ancient Egyptians several thousand years ago.

The city is part of ancient Thebes: ‘the one hundred-gated city’ As the site of the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, it has frequently been characterized as the “world’s greatest open air museum”.

Immediately opposite, across the Nile River, lie the monuments, temples and tombs on the West Bank Necropolis, which include the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. Thousands of international tourists arrive annually to visit these monuments, contributing a large part towards the economy for the modern city.
