On this excursion we'll leave Luxor behind, making our way to Abydos and Dendera, two cities on the banks of the Nile where fascinating temples can be found.
Having picked you up at your hotel or boat, we'll leave Luxor behind, making our way to Abydos, a city found 260 km northeast of the city.
In Abydos we'll see its famous temple, constructed by Set I in honour of Osiris. In this temple, you can't only find important scenes from the life of Set I and Ramses II, but also the famous Royal Lists, with the names of the 77 kings of Egypt from Menes to Set I himself.
Abydos was the most important religious centre and site of pilgrimage in Egypt. Here can be found representations of the "Mysteries of Osiris" a ceremony which reproduced the death and resurrection of the God Osiris.
We'll then have a picnic lunch, after which we'll make our way to Dendera.
The Dendera Temple is dedicated to the goddess Hathor and its construction, beginning in the reign of Nectanebo I, continued into the Roman period. The temple has two decorated crypts, two halls with ceilings supported by columns and two funeral chapels, from where the famous "zodiac" from the Louvre comes.
Having made one last stop at the Temple of Isis, we'll leave Dendera behind to bead back to Luxor, leaving you back at your lodgings between 5 and 6 pm.
