Travelling through Egypt, you'll discover a fascinating country enriched by a culture spanning a thousand years. A dream destination in which there are numerous unmissable sites.

There's no doubt about it, the valley of the kings at Luxor will be at the top of your list of places to visit due to its splendid temples and necropoli, listed as UNESCO world heritage sites. Let's not forget the legendary pyramids of Giza and the megalopolis of Cairo, with its prestigious past...

For a trip certain to waken the explorer deep within, continue with a dromedary ride through the White desert, scuba diving in the Red Sea, an authentic cruise at Elephantine between the islands of the Nile valley, or by discovering the impressive pyramid of Saqqarah and the temple of Kôm Ombo, with its famous crocodile mummies!

A trip to Egypt also means experiencing a diverse society with a mix of tradition and modernity, steeped in the Egyptian literature of Naguib Mahfouz, winner of the Nobel literary prize, at Alaa El Aswany, a clear witness of Cairo's contemporary society. You'll learn how proud the Egyptians are of their ancestral past, and you'll meet hospitable and warm people, open to conversation over a good meal. Egypt boasts an impressive culinary heritage, rich in Syro-Lebanese, Greek and Turkish influences. Don't forget to try the local Egyptian specialities: mezze (a selection of hot and cold hors-d'oeuvre), mahshi (various vegetables stuffed with mince), kofta (mince meat skewers), kebab (grilled lamb)...


Latéfa Faïz
The famous stepped pyramid, a must-see for history or archaeology enthusiasts, and for those who have dreamed of seeing the pyramids from an early age!
