Valley of the Queens Tours

star-5
3 reviews
Valley of the Queens
Hidden in a Y-shaped ravine on the West Bank of the Nile, the Valley of the Queens is an ancient burial site where the wives of the reigning Pharaohs from the 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasties were buried. The valley not only contains the tombs of the royal wives and children from this time, but is also home to a number of other tombs of members of the royal families, including princesses and princes. 

The most famous tomb at the site is that of Queen Nefertari, which is only occasionally open to visitors. Widely considered to be the finest in the whole of Egypt, the tomb of Nefertari has been completely restored but is nevertheless closed more often than not. Nefertari was one of the five wives of Ramses II, and the tomb he built for his favourite queen is a grand shrine to her beauty and a testament of his love for her. Among its ornate decoration it features colorful scenes upon its chamber walls and golden stars adorning the ceiling.


Practical Info

The Valley of the Queens is situated at the southern end of the Theban hillside on the West Bank of the Nile. To reach the site from Luxor, visitors can take the National Ferryboat from the Corniche, before taking a taxi to the West Bank.
Address: West Bank, Luxor, Egypt
Hours: Open daily 6am-5pm
