Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis
Thebes, the city of the god Amon, was the capital of Egypt during the period of the Middle and New Kingdoms. With the temples and palaces at Karnak and Luxor, and the necropolises of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, Thebes is a striking testimony to Egyptian civilization at its height.
Its every Egyptologist dream to see first time they go to Egypt.

Not in a million years would i have considered a place romantic while traveling with my parents but i was on a luxor/aswan cruise for 5 days/4 nights....and it was the best trip ever....the splendour of the temples and monuments in luxor is breathtaking especially the "sound & light" show in Fiyala temple and Karnak and the sunset of the Nile in aswan is soothing to the nerves!!It was the best!!
This is one of the best things in Egypt. There are 3 Sound & Light shows, in Cairo, Luxor, and Philae. Its like transporting yourself back to the time of the great Pharoahs. It is so atmospheric with the 'story' of the kings being brought to life by imagination and some help from a narrative being played through speakers. During the day time the temples are to be marvelled. The size and grandure of the scale of just the pylons. The original colour that has remained through all the 1,000's years. A place I go to as often as possible.
