The best things to do in Luxor

The modern city of Luxor stands on the western shore of the Nile River. Like any important Egyptian city, many of the most popular Luxor attractions are the oldest things in the city. You'll find here the ruins of temples dedicated to the god Amun and get a taste of ancient Egypt.

Luxor Temple, one of the major attractions in Luxor, was built by the Pharaohs Amenhotep III and Ramses II. It is 260 meters long and has several shrines, a large patio, an atrium, a birth chamber and a processional colonnade. It also contains a mosque that is still in operation today, showing how the stuff to do in Luxor mixes the ancient with the more modern.

An avenue flanked by sphinxes connects the Temple of Luxor with the Temple of Karnak, the largest complex of ancient Egyptian architecture and one of the most essential things to do in Luxor. Do not miss their great hypostyle hall: 102 meters wide, 53 meters deep and with 134 columns, each 23 meters tall.

Crossing the Nile will answer the question of what to do in Luxor after you've already seen everything on the west of the river! The Theban Necropolis consists of the Valley of the Kings, where total of 64 tombs have been discovered. Here is of course one of the most famous places to visit in Luxor, Tutankhamun's Tomb. You'll also find the Valley of the Queens, designed for important royal wives. The temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon are other things to see in Luxor. And after all of that, one of the best Luxor activities to learn about the legacy of Egyptian pharaohs is a visit to the Luxor Museum or the Mummification Museum.
