Aswan is Egypt’s third largest city and an important administrative, commercial and touristic centre situated at the foot of the Nile Valley. Home to many granite quarries, it was the ancient Egyptians’ gateway to Africa. While there is a lot to see here, it a place where one can truly relax. The river flows gently down from Lake Nasser around dramatic black-granite boulders and palm-studded islands. Colourful Nubian villages run down to the water and stand out against the backdrop of the west bank’s desert. Egypt Air runs daily flights from Cairo to Awan and back. It is also well connected by train, road and sea.
