You can see it but not walk down it. Worth a look. Located in Luxor Temple. They are doing some sort of reconstruction.

The Avenue of the Sphinxes is the ancient way that links Luxor Temple to Karnak Temple. The avenue its self is an interesting piece of history that sank beneath centuries of silt deposits from the annual Nile inundation to being re-found by modern archaeologists. Our hotel, the Nefertiti Hotel was situated right on the road next to the avenue which gave us splendid views up and down the avenue. During a night visit to Luxor Temple, I went for a short walk along the avenue to see some of the sphinxes up close. definately worh a close up look.

É a avenida que ligava os Templos de Luxor e Karnak, hoje só existem algumas esfinges na entrada do Templo de Karnak, a avenida não existe mais. It is the avenue that connected the Temples of Luxor and Karnak, today there are only a few sphinxes at the entrance to the Temple of Karnak, the avenue no longer exists.
