Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities launched, in collaboration with its partners from scientific and archaeological institutes, a series of virtual guided tours of several museums and archaeological sites across Egypt.
This initiative comes within the framework of the ministry’s efforts to enable people worldwide to explore and enjoy the ancient Egyptian civilization from home, as part of the world precautionary measures to fight the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
The tours will be available on the Ministry’s website and social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, under the slogan “Experience Egypt from Home. Stay Home. Stay Safe.”
The first tour was launched today in cooperation with the American Research Center in Cairo.
It explored the Menna Tomb in Theban Necropolis, one of the most beautiful Tombs of the Nobles in Luxor’s West Bank. It dates back to the 18th Dynasty.
