The pyramids remain engraved in the memory of human civilization as a marvel and proof of how the pharos was ahead of their times and how their secrets are not revealed despite the tremendous scientific development.

the pharaohs’ spirits. The second day could be dedicated to museums like visiting The Egyptian Museum.

which agricultural caravans came. After that, you could fly to Aswan as it possesses a large number of the great
monuments of Egypt which differs from other monuments of the world, as it is not kind of remains of palaces, buildings, or temples, but rather an integrated civilization that retains its beauty, splendor and great value.
