Excursions between Al-Minya and Assiut – Tell el-Amarna

Tell el-Armarna -Bild 1Tell el-Armarna: About 424 kilometers north of Luxor, we arrive at the small village of Armarna, which is quite midway between these Al-Minya and Asyut. Here you will find the ruins of Achet-Aton, the home of the famous Pharaoh Echn’Aton, his wife Nefertiti and probably the place where Tut-Anch-Amun grew up.

More informations about this place can be found at Wikipedia.

Note:  On the way from Luxor to the north to Tell el-Armarna, you also pass the temples of Dandarah and Abydos. You can visit them cost-effectively with our adventure package “Northern Egypt – from Luxor to Al Minya”, which also leads you to the ruins of Hermopolis Magna and the rock tombs of Beni Hasan.
