Without the blistering heat of summer and the large crowds and prices of winter, spring is an excellent time to visit Egypt.
Eid al Fitr Festival
Marking Ramadan's end, the festival sees attractions, restaurants and shops return to normal service. Taking place in summer, the exact date varies each year.
Autumn also brings lower temperatures and smaller crowds. Visit in September to catch the Wafaa Al Nil festival, celebrating the mighty Nile River.
See the Pyramids of Giza
Rising up from the Nile's western bank and watched over by the Sphinx, the pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure are Egypt's most famous attractions.
Cruise down the Nile
See the valley of the Kings from the water as you sail down the Nile from Aswan to Luxor.
Relax at a Red Sea resort
Feel the sand beneath your toes at Hurghada and explore the wrecks, reefs and abundant sea life of its warm clear waters.
