Middle East & North Africa

The Middle East is where history happens. Home to, or conquered by, most of the great civilisations and empires of human history, the historical legacy of the region is unparalleled across the world. Egyptian pyramids and temples, Roman cities and amphitheatres, Crusader castles and the rock-carved city of Petra only begin to describe the wonders of the area. The Middle East is also home to many of the holiest sites of the three great Abrahamic religions, including the incomparable Jerusalem. History isn't confined to the past here however - ongoing conflict and revolutions can make travel in the region difficult and hazardous - the rewards on offer are worth any incovenience though so don't miss out.
