Visiting Egypt from Cyprus
A visit to Egypt, the great land of Pharaohs, is an experience that anyone that has done the trip will cherish for the rest of their lifetime. Egypt’s proximity to Cyprus makes this an easy trip from Larnaca or Paphos by air. The rich history of Egypt has left a vast array of monuments that you certainly do not need to be an archeologist to appreciate. From the World Heritage Pyramid Plateau to Ramses the II statues at Abu Simbel, Egypt will amaze you and make you stand in awe in front of the monumental remains of a culture that started to leave its mark in the early fourth Millennium B.C. History is not, of course, the only reason to tour Egypt. A Nile river cruise offers the traveler glimpses of the natural beauty and the stark contrasts that make Egypt what it is. Nile cruising is also one of the most comfortable ways to tour Upper Egypt. The standard of some of the riverboats that gently glide the Nile waters are high with some of the boats managed by international hotel chains such as Movenpick and Sonesta. Trips to Egypt from Cyprus can also usually be made by cruise boat from Limassol but unfortunately not for 2019. To see possible trips by boat out of Cyprus please visit our site’s cruises section.
