One of the most beautiful of Egypt's cities, Aswan's magic lies in its combination of exciting history and calming downtime. It offers stunning opportunities for temple viewing, especially at Philae, but the real pleasure of Aswan is the Nile itself. The Nubian people who live and work on and around it are as happy to go with the flow as the river itself.
