Deir Al Medina, Luxor

West Bank
Egypt's insider take:

The artists and artisans who built the Theban tombs lived in this village on the path between Hatshepsut's Temple and the Valley of the Queens. You can visit the tombs of two workmen, Sennedjem and Inherkhau, who prepared their own resting places with the same care and delicacy as their royal 19th-dynasty patrons. A short walk north of the tombs lie several small temples.
