The most beautiful city on the Nile, place of the black pharaohs and where it all began! this city has a lot to offer. Here, the Nile is at its peak of beauty, meandering between the many green islets that inhabit it and crowned with feluccas. Jewel of southern Egypt, Nubian and proud of it! Located near the first cataract. Not to be missed: The Temple of Isis in Philae (The Pearl of the Nile), the High Dam, and a felucca ride on the Nile.
