Austere pyramids, pharaonic temples, the tomb of Tutankhamen, and the treasures of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo: contemporary Egypt retains the charm of the ancient Egyptian civilization but also welcomes those who, with interest in history, combine the desire for deserted and beautiful beaches depths to explore with memorable dives. Egyptian hospitality surprises the traveler and translates into well-priced buses, budget hotels of a more than decent standard, and even a few cold beers.
