Virtual tours are 3D-models of rooms, composed of many pictures. You can view the tombs in the same way as the streets on Google maps.

A virtual copy of the structure allows you to freely move around, zoom in on the camera and view even the smallest details, while other visitors will not interfere with you.

Eight locations are available for visiting:

Tomb of the Pharaohs Ramses V and Ramses VI

Catacombs of Kom el-Shukaf

Necropolis of Beni Hassan

Synagogue Ben Ezra

Sultan Barkuk Mosque Madrasah

Red monastery

Tomb of Queen Meresanh III

Tomb of Menna
