Everything in Egypt seems to be on an impossibly grand scale – history spanning thousands of years, majestic temples, gigantic monuments and vast deserts. Flowing through the centre is its eternal lifeblood, the mighty Nile.

Learn about more recent history at the World War II memorials in El Alamein and relax on the shores of the sparkling Red Sea.
