The Egyptian embassy in Canada has invited Canadians to enjoy a 3D virtual journey across Egypt from Aswan to Alexandria, exploring the country’s historic sites.
The virtual tours are compiled by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities launched previously on its social media platforms.
Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zaid said that 14 virtual tours of archaeological sites all over Egypt were selected, in order to show the diversity of the Egyptian civilisation.
The tours were sent to the members of the Canadian parliament, the Canadian government and ambassadors to different countries in Canada, in addition to the Egyptian community there.
The tours will provide Canadians with the opportunity enjoying those virtual visits during their confinement as well as encouraging them to visit Egypt soon after the return of tourism, he said.
The tours include the tomb of Meresankh III, the tomb of Menna, the Ben Ezra Synagogue, and the Red Monastery, among other sites.
