Luxor Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

A former capital of the ancient world standing on the banks of the Nile and boasting countless treasures, Luxor has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To the east stand the remains of the temples dedicated to Amun (Luxor, Karnak), best visited by horse-drawn carriage to fully appreciate life's pleasures under the Egyptian skies, so blue in the warm months (October-March). To the west in the Theban Mountains lie the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. After the bustle of Luxor's little streets and souk, immerse yourself in the silence of eternity!
