Tour the sole survivor of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids of Giza still live up to more than 4, 000 years of hype. Let me answer the question ‘How were they built, and why? Let me tell you in details about their extraordinary shape, geometry and age rendering them somehow alien constructions. The oldest and biggest pyramid is that of Khufu (tallest), and you can go inside this one if you don’t suffer from claustrophobia.
Explore the 2 other Pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure. Proceed to gaze up at the colossal Sphinx, the enigmatic statue of a human-headed lion that guards the pyramids and, if you wish, visit the Solar Boat Museum. Admire the beautiful wooden boat, once used to transport Khufu’s body to the site, and learn how its remnants were discovered and reassembled. Then, head inside Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, home to some 120, 000 incredible ancient artifacts and treasures of Tutankhamun. Finish with a visit to Khan el-Khalili bazaar, Cairo’s main souk.
