The Nile is at its most beautiful in the Egyptian city of Aswan, its residents boast. The city is also a gateway to Nubian culture. Nubian musicians and dancers perform there in floating restaurants and you can visit the Museum of Nubia, which chronicles a history now buried underneath the waters of Lake Nassar.
You can also take a trip to Elephantine Island, one of the most ancient locations of human civilisation in Egypt. Temples, gardens and ruins dating back to the predynastic period are only a few of the sights on the island worth seeing.
