The links below lead to pages on the website of the Egyptian State Information Service.  These pages contain very useful information about sightseeing in each city/place.  However, the pages are VERY slow to load.  We encourage you to access them.  But perhaps you'd like to go have a donut and a cup of coffee while each page loads.  (Just kidding.  The pages aren't quite THAT slow!)   :)
