    Travel: Egypt or Rome?

    I want to have an educational trip for a week and both countries entice my liking. They both seem to promise a lot of historical stuff. I just don't know which plane ticket I'm going to buy. (Exclude: expenses, hassle of travel, etc. I just wanna learn a lot.)

    Rome at the moment. I'd have thought no-brainer!!!! Unless you wish to see some history in the making....

    Having been to Rome, I can indeed say you'll find a lot of ancient buildings there from the Roman empire (or what is left of it). You're not just choosing between two destinations but also two cultures: the Roman empire or the time of the pharaohs.

    As superwags says, you don't want to be in Egypt right now so go for Rome if you are traveling soon. It doesn't really matter where you travel as long as you don't end up staying at home because you cannot choose...

    They are both a must visit, so different, lots of culture. After school I went to Egypt. I hate museums, but learned a lot from the people and  culture. Went last year to Rome. I really did enjoy the Vatican and the lifestyle,  but I got a lot more out of Egypt.

    Egypt's a beautiful country with a lot of incredible history, but I don't think it's the place you want to be in right now. It's dangerous just for the Egyptian natives, let alone a traveller.

    Rome's also a very beautiful place with some fascinating history, so right now I'd go there.

    I was born in Rome and Italy does have lots of historical places. The ruins for example are a good way to learn about the romans ,and what the roman empire was like , and a tour guide will take you around to explore it's historical beauty. But on the other hand Egypt is a wonderful place with it's own magical history.

    With the establishment of Roman rule by Emperor Augustus in 30 B.C., more than six centuries of Roman and Byzantine control began. Egypt again became the province of an empire, as it had been under the Persians and briefly under Alexander. As the principal source of the grain supply for Rome, it came under the direct control of the emperor in his capacity as supreme military chief, and a strong force was garrisoned there. Gradually, Latin replaced Greek as the language of higher administration. In 212 Rome gave the Egyptians citizenship in the empire.

    The emperor ruled as successor to the Ptolemies with the title of "Pharaoh, Lord of the Two Lands," and the conventional divine attributes assigned to Egyptian kings were attributed to him. Rome was careful, however, to bring the native priesthood under its control, although guaranteeing traditional priestly rights and privileges.
