Proceed to Valley of the Queens. This is the place where the wives of Pharaohs were buried in ancient times. In ancient times, it was known as Ta-Set-Neferu, meaning –”the place of beauty”. For an extra fee, you will be able to see the fascinating tomb of Nefertari. The beloved wife of Ramses the II.
Continue to visit the Valley of the Nobles, the tombs of ancient Egypt’s nobles and high officials were scattered through the rocky hills on the West Bank of Luxor at el Qurna site, the majority of the tombs dating from the New Kingdom, the Golden Age of Thebes. Decorated with daily live scenes, funerals, and ideal afterlives of their owners, these tombs provide us with a wealth of information about life and religious beliefs in ancient Egypt. Their beauty also attests to the skill and creativity of the ancient Egyptian artisans.
