Hundreds or thousands line the road between Kranak and Luxor Temple, though most have not been excavated yet. You get a good glimpse from Luxor Temple, and can imagine the Pharoah's walk each year!

This is probably the most expensive site to see in Luxor but well worth it. If you're driving your own car, arrive early to deal with the hassle of parking. If you only have one day you can spend in Luxor, go to Hatshepsut, Valley...More

The avenue of the sphinxes is currently under a lot of restoration. It is interesting to imagine how it would have looked stretching between karnak and luxor temples but currently is pretty underwhelming. Post restoration and reopening it may be much more grand.

This is a road under restoration that connects the great temples of luxor. It is not really a destination into itself but does show the prominence of the temples in ancient times.

The Avenue of Sphinxes is impressive! The sphinxes themselves are very well preserved and a great addition to touring both Karnak and Luxor temple. There is no need to see them on their own as they are the 3 km road that connects both temples....More

The Avenue of the sphinxes is the main pathway to the entrance of the Temple, so if you're going to the temple you will get a chance to walk down this magical path.

Beautiful to see the sphinxes surviving that many thousands of years .. the road itself extends about 3 kilometers where the newly found sites consist of most of it.

I would not recommend it on it's own because it's the same sculpture repeated many many times over a 2 mile distance. As part of the collection of temples and tombs it is quite impressive.

Exemplifies the grand scale of this ancient city. The Avenue was undergoing restoration but this did not detract from the experience.
