Tomb of King Seti I

Said to be the finest tomb in the Valley of the Kings, the tomb of King Seti I always astounds any visitor to Egypt. It is one of the more expensive tombs to visit (approx USD $75 / £60 per person), but the expense is thoroughly worth it. The tomb is 137 metres long and was discovered by Giovanni Belzoni in 1817. Seti I succeeded Ramses I and was the father of Ramses II and ruled about 70 years after the reign of Tutankhamun. His reign was part of a golden age, and the art saw a revival of Old Kingdom styles see here and also at the amazing temple at Abydos. The walls are adorned with colour, including the Litany of Ra, Book of the Dead, Book of Gates, Book of the Heavenly Cow and many others.
