Aswan is wonderfully pleasant and lush. The lack of good hotel options here (at the time of our visit) was a detractor but I certainly wish we had stayed more than the 24 hours we devoted here. A nice jumping off point for Abu Simbel but other nearby ruins and the spectacular Nile scenery make Aswan special.Recommended for:

Aswan I loved! On the beautiful Nile, where the water is clean enough to be drinkable (if that's even a word). Also, the people and energy in Aswan are wonderful! Met loads of amazing Nubians and had a blast singing and dancing and drinking tea with them all!!! In fact, I even recorded a song with the band from Isle Hesse, which is on iTunes! Woot! "Rise" by Nubian Fusion with Sue Divine. ... I would definitely go back there again and stay for an extended period of time... soo fun!

The Luxor area of Upper Egypt was the Thebes of the ancient Egyptians - the capital of Egypt during the Middle and New Kingdoms. Today it is famous for its temples. Next to Cairo, this is the city holding the most impressive Pharaonic monuments. And they're bountiful too. Valley of the Kings, the Theban Necropolis and Karnak are all a few miles away from the city of Luxor,i visited Aswan with alltoursegyp.com

Da Settembre a Maggio si organizzano dei viaggi sul Nilo in Feluca. L’itinerario classico inizia ad Assuan e termina a Luxor. Sarebbe molto più difficile fare il viaggio nella direzione contraria, perché la feluche si muovono a vela e andando verso sud nella direzione contraria devono risalire la corrente diventando molto più lente.
From September to May organised trips on the Nile on a sailboat. A classic itinerary begins to Aswan and ends in Luxor. It would be much more difficult to make the journey in the opposite direction, because the feluccas move in sailing and going toward the south in the opposite direction to trace the current becoming much slower.
