It takes some time and effort getting to the Royal Tombs. There is not much to see inside, but the outside is very impressive. Worth the effort.

The facades of the Royal Tombs, cresting above the wadi and the cardo, drew us in, and forcing us to ask a lot of questions. Getting up close and seeing the silk tomb, for example, is a must see, with all the multi-coloured rock. Entering...More
