With one third of all of the world’s antiquities and the only remaining one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (the pyramids at Giza), Egypt has drawn tourists for thousands of years. From the Greeks and Romans to Napoleon and Mark Twain, travelers have come to see the glorious temples built by the pharaohs. Today, the mix of ancient monuments and Biblical landscapes continues to bewitch, making the country a must-in-a-lifetime visit.
