Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan

An AUC Press Guide Michael Haag

Discover three sides of ancient, modern, exciting Egypt: exuberant Cairo, with its Arabian Nights bazaars, Islamic monuments, shining skyscrapers and awesome pyramids; Luxor’s astonishing wealth of age-old temples and magnificent tombs; dreamy, relaxed, timeless Aswan, gateway to Abu Simbel and other monuments of Nubia rescued from the rising waters of Lake Nasser. With comprehensive listings and an entertaining narrative, this guide introduces three outstanding cities to the independent tourist. Egypt is a land of spectacle, a country vast in time, but, far from being a daunting experience for the traveler, its story is there for anyone to comprehend and enjoy. That is the purpose of this book, a guide and narrative spanning five thousand years, in which the exuberance of Cairo, the splendor of Luxor and the beauty of Aswan form the principal chapters.
