Highlights of the trip

Day 1

Abu Simbel - The Nubian Campaign

In the heart of the Nubian region, the Abu Simbel Temples commemorate the victory of Ramses II in the conflict that pitted him against the Hittite king Muwatalli in the battle of Qadesh around 1260 BC. Temples dedicated to the worship of the gods, the pharaoh and his wife Nefertari, the whole complex was disassembled to be moved to the shelter of the future Lake Nasser, an artificial reservoir built from 1958. In this place, full of history both ancient and modern, you will discover the secrets of the Nubia Campaign, one of the most ambitious projects for the safeguarding of the world heritage led by UNESCO in cooperation with many countries.

Days 1 to 4

Aswan - The City in the Heart of the Waters

We continue our Escape to the beautiful city of Aswan, known for its gigantic dam on the Nile and its pink granite quarries. Blocks for obelisks throughout Egypt, pyramids, statues and royal colossi were transported north on the Nile. As the gateway to the kingdom of Nubia, ancient Syene was the port of entry for the most precious goods: ivory, gold, spices and fabrics. You will visit the Sanctuary of Isis at Philae, a Nubian monument that was moved when the dam was built. Aboard a felucca on the Nile or in the comfort of your hotel, you will appreciate the charm and serenity of this eternal city that inspired Agatha Christie and captured the heart of François Mitterrand.
