Giza

 
Giza Giza is a town in Egypt on the west bank of the Nile river, some 20 km southwest of central Cairo and now part of the greater Cairo metropolis. It is the capital of the Al Jizah Governorate. It is located right on the banks of the Nile River. There will be self appointed guides and camel drivers waiting for you, to talk you into a guided visit, but this is hardly necessary. Just watch the huge pyramids and let their sheer size impress you. ==== GIZA - ATTRACTION This is where the pyramids are, at least the biggest ones. There are a few others a bit more to the south, in Saqqara, where you find the oldest (step) pyramid, but you come to Giza for the big one. Giza is most famous as the location of the Giza...
 

Saqqara Pyramids

 
Saqqara Pyramids Time has all but erased the once mighty Memphis from the Egyptian landscape, however, the city of the dead has been excavated and exhumed from the desert sands, the vast necropolis of Saqqara. Memphis is some 23km south of central Cairo, in the center of the floodplain on the western side of the Nile. Memphis was traditionally founded in 3000 BC by Menes, the legendary figure credited with the creation of a politically unified Egypt. Memphis served as the effective administrative capital of the country during the Old Kingdom and partly in later times. It's eleven pyramids, countless mastabas and lone Coptic monastery stretch over 7km from north to south, and span three and a half thousand years of Egyptian civilisa...
 

The Great Sphinx (Giza)

 
The Great Sphinx (Giza) Like the broken arms of the Venus de Milo, the Great Sphinx's long lost nose has made it all the more iconic. Standing guard at the hallowed entrance to the Great Pyramids of Giza, the human-headed, lion-bodied Sphinx is the oldest of all Egypt's superhuman stone sculptures. It is also the most instantly recognizable. Originally hewn from a gigantic piece of limestone bedrock, it was covered in plaster and paint in its youth. But the winds, waters and sands of the Giza Plateau have taken their toll. Once upon a time, the Great Sphinx also wore a Pharaoh's royal beard. Part of it is in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and the other part is in the British Museum in London. Though named by the Greeks after their riddle-lo...
 

Dokki

 
Dokki Dokki is a district of greater Giza, Egypt. Dokki is situated on the Western bank of the Nile, directly across from Downtown Cairo. ==== DOKKI - ATTRACTION Many Cairene landmarks are located in Dokki, including Cairo University, Giza Zoological Garden, the German school DEO. There is not much sight seeing there, but it is a nice area for those who would like to rent an apartment. Its popular with Arab tourists because of the budget accommodation available....
 

Al Giza Pyramids

 
Al Giza Pyramids Guarded by the familiar lone lion-bodied Sphinx are the three Great Pyramids of Giza. Over 4,000 years ago, the mummified bodies of Kings Cheops, Kefren and Mykerinos were ferried down the Nile to be buried and prepared for the journey to the afterlife within these massive monuments. The largest, oldest and finest of all three is Cheop's Pyramid, simply known as the Great Pyramid. It was the tallest structure in the world until the end of the nineteenth century (145 meters). But Kefren's Pyramid, Cheop's son and successor, makes a bigger first impression. On higher ground with its limestone cap still intact, it looks loftier even though it's 4 meters shorter. Giza, Pyramid, Tomb The smallest of the three, Myker...
 

Dahshur Pyramids

 
Dahshur Pyramids There were originally 11 pyramids at Dahshur, although only the two Old Kingdom Pyramids, the Bent and the Red Pyramid, remain intact. Pharaoh Sneferu, father of Khufu and founder of the 4th Dynasty, built Egypt's first real pyramid, the Red Pyramid, here. It is a quiet place where you will be able to enjoy the monuments in peace.
