The Independence's Year:





One of the most important nations of the world for historical and cultural motives, crib of an ancient civilization, that has left traces of enormous suggestion.
Today the great appeal of the Red Sea (that with a sunny climate perpetually and rich transparent backdrops of an unique fauna make absolutely Egypt one of the more popular destinations of the World) is added to the attractions of the ancient architectures that go from the Pyramids of Giza, to the temples of Luxor and Karnac, from Abu Simbel to the Valley of the Kings.
But the charm of the nation must also be sought in the souks of the Cairo, to the market of Khan el Kahili and in the fantastic muslim architectures and in the oases of the western desert and in the splendid steeples of the mountains of the oriental desert.
