On this day we take a scenic drive to the ancient city of Memphis located 20 kilometers/12 miles south of Cairo, on the west bank of the Nile River.

Upon completion of the tour, you fly back to Aswan to meet up with the cruise ship and for an overnight stay in Aswan.

Today we cruise along the Nile River from Aswan to the town of Kom Ombo famous for the Temple of Kom Ombo. This is a unique temple because it has a double design duplicated for two sets of gods.

The day begins with a tour of the West Bank which includes the Valley of the Kings where for a period of nearly 500 years tombs were constructed for the Pharaohs and powerful nobles. The valley is known to contain 63 tombs and some are decorated with scenes from Egyptian mythology and give clues to the beliefs and funerary practices of the period. Next, we visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, a mortuary temple dedicated to the sun god Amon-Ra, located beneath the cliffs at Deir el Bahari. Hatshepsut was the second historically confirmed female pharaoh and one of the most successful rulers in Ancient Egypt.

The temple complex was built over 2,000 years ago and is dedicated to the Theban triad of Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. We continue on to the Luxor Temple, a large ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the east bank of the Nile River. The temple was built approximately 1400 BCE and was dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship. It is believed that many of the kings of Egypt were crowned in this temple.

We continue to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the largest temple in Greece, and the Ancient Agora, a central public space that was the heart of ancient Athens.

After lunch, we visit the Panathenaic Stadium, the site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, and the National Archaeological Museum, one of the most important museums in the world dedicated to ancient Greek art.

On this day, we take a full-day excursion to Delphi, an ancient sanctuary that grew rich as the seat of Pythia, the oracle who was consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient classical world. Delphi is both an archaeological site and a modern town in Greece. The site contains the Temple of Apollo, the ancient theater, and the Delphi Archaeological Museum. We return to Athens in the evening for an overnight stay.

We leave Athens and head to Delphi, one of Greece’s national treasures located about 2.5 hours away. Along the way, we pass through the towns of Levadia and Arahova. Delphi is a charming village situated on the slopes of the ancient Parnos Mountain, providing spectacular views. This village has dramatic ancient remains, including the Sanctuary of Apollo, the most important sacred site in the Greek world and home to the famous Oracle.
