The "vast and trunkless legs" still stand, surrounded by various bits of ancient and hieroglyphic-encrusted rubble, at the Ramesseum on the West Bank of the Nile at Luxor. The Ramesseum is one of the less popular and well-visited archaeological sites in the area -- all the air-conditioned tour buses thunder straight past it en route to dank and sweaty tombs in the Valley of the Kings -- so it's a good place for the Romantically inclined to stop for a picnic. You can take each others' pictures sitting on Ramses II's feet, stand on a broken pillar and recite the poem out loud at his enormous and very beautifully carved pink granite head (still lying there, and only missing a few chunks) and meditate upon the transience of all things and the evanescence of power. It's a real trip.
