Egypt is one of the most popular travel destinations for lovers of history, art, and ancient Egyptian culture. Who has never dreamed, at least once in their life, of experiencing a Nile cruise or of admiring the beautiful pyramids, perhaps riding a camel? Often travelers who intend to organize a trip to discover this beautiful land find themselves not knowing where to start, how to organize the trip best, and how to make the travel experience unique, authentic, and profitable. With this guide, we want to give you some tips on how to organize the perfect Egypt Vacation Packages. Let’s get started right away.
A tip before starting!
Many travelers who intend to go to Egypt thinking of doing so to devote themselves exclusively to the tourist and maritime side usually offered by the most common holiday packages and which, however, give few opportunities to explore the true heart of Egypt with its beauties and its history. Maybe you could opt for a solution that includes a stay in a village, especially if you intend to take a relaxing holiday, but organize at least a part of the trip that is oriented towards the inner part of the country on the banks of the Nile between desert, pyramids and a visit to the suggestive Egyptian cities.
It doesn’t matter how much time you have available for your trip. There are at least three stages that we consider mandatory for your itinerary to discover Egypt. Here’s what they are!
- A cruise on the Nile
What would the country be without that mythical and immense river that crosses it? Without a doubt, taking a Nile cruise is one of the essential experiences on a trip to Egypt. You don’t have to have too much imagination to be able to visualize yourself contemplating beautiful sunsets on the deck as the call to prayer, coming from the oratories of nearby mosques, becomes the perfect soundtrack. The Nile, with its 6,600 kilometers in length (one of the longest in the world), invites you to get to know the country from a completely different perspective. There are many boats that make the typical route from Luxor to Aswan or vice versa. So don’t think about it – include it on your list of activities to do in Egypt and enjoy a few days sailing through its waters!
- Learn about the Egyptian climate
It is possible to visit Egypt throughout the year as there is little rainfall, with a dry climate during the winter and desert in the summer. Usually, in the coastal area, the climate is slightly more humid than perhaps what can be found in Cairo with the maximum temperatures, which, in summer, can reach up to 50 degrees. It is good to remember that, between day and night, there is a strong temperature range, and it is, therefore, good to be prepared for any eventuality. For those who love a sea-only holiday, it is possible to choose the Red Sea area throughout the year, even in winter, to experience a dream vacation between snorkeling and days on the beach with temperatures that in Italy we usually have in late spring. Thanks to these climatic factors,
- Giza, Egypt
Who doesn’t think about what to see in Egypt and automatically draws the pyramids of Giza on their head? They make up the country’s most iconic image and, of course, had to be on our list of essentials.
So, without even moving from Cairo, we started to know Cheops, Kefren, and Micerinos: the pyramids are the only wonder of the ancient world that still exists today. Despite being 5,000 years old!
Get a close look at each of the huge stones on which the pyramids are built. It is estimated that each of them weighs about two tons and that they were transported to this place with the force of twenty thousand workers. Something we recommend, without a doubt, is to visit the inside: every few months, access to one of the pyramids opens to the public, something that varies to maintain its conservation. When you are tired of admiring this architectural marvel to see in Egypt, it will be time to pay your respects to the Great Sphinx.
These are some of the things not to be missed during your stay in Egypt. Obviously, this is a starting point that can expand your itinerary depending on the days available and the type of holiday you intend to do. Create an itinerary that is always marked by some elements such as authenticity, traditions, and culture for a journey that turns out to be a once in a lifetime experience, Have a nice trip!
