This fascinating archaeological site goes back to 30 BC to 641 AD, when Egypt was a province of the Roman Empire. Situated about an hour from Safaga on the road to the Nile. Mons Claudianus was a granite-mining town and is the largest and best-preserved Roman site in the Eastern Desert. It was once home to some thousand soldiers and civil quarry men who mined the beautiful granite, which was sent via the Nile to beautify Rome.

Granite blocks from Mons Claudianus can still be seen in the Eternal City in form of columns and floors at Villa Adriana, the Pantheon and many other monuments. Most tour operators offer an excursion to the site, but it can also be reached by renting a taxi for the day
