Egypt // The Nile Valley //

Short itineraries around the Necropolis

Share

For those who like to linger over every carving, the tombs and temples on the west bank could easily fill three or four days. If you’re forced to cram the highlights into half a day, a minimalist schedule might run: Valley of the Kings (1hr 30min), Deir el-Bahri (20min), the Tombs of the Nobles (30min–1hr), Medinet Habu (30min) and/or the Ramesseum (30min). If you have a full day, catch a taxi to the Valley of the Kings before 9am, spend a couple of hours there and then walk over the hills to Deir el-Bahri, arranging to be met there for another ride to Medinet Habu or Deir el-Medina and the Valley of the Queens. Alternatively, you could spend time at the Tombs of the Nobles and the Ramesseum before returning to the landing stage.
