In all of the world’s great historic civilizations, there is nothing quite like the splendor and magical allure of ancient Egypt. The wonders of ancient Egypt have drawn tourists for thousands of years; inspired Herodotus, Alexander the Great, Shakespeare, and Napoleon; influenced western art, decorative art, literature, and popular culture; and have enthralled countless millions of people around the world.

What is it about the ancient Egyptians that so deeply fires the human imagination thousands of years after their passing? Consider their legacy through:

Their breathtaking art—the unique style and sublime aesthetic beauty of their stone-carved reliefs, monumental sculpture, wall paintings, and decorative arts, which show a level of refinement and artistic accomplishment rarely rivaled in history;
A cosmology and religious mythology of fabulously rich complexity and dimensions, as revealed in iconic texts such as the Book of the Dead and the Book of Day and Night, and in the superlative decoration of a wide spectrum of tombs, temples, palaces, cities, and ritual objects;
An astonishingly vivid and intimate window onto daily life as it was thousands of years ago, which we can view through their hieroglyphic writing, decorative arts, papyri, and texts, and in sites such as the Lost City of the Pyramid Builders; and
Awe-inspiring monuments that still capture the world’s wonder and imagination, including sites such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Temple of Amun-Re at Karnak, the great Temple of Ramesses II at Abu Simbel, and numerous others.
