Discover Gizeh Pyramid Egypt

The most famous pyramids stand on a rocky plateau some 12 miles north of Saqqara. They are the remains of a larger complex ensemble built around the middle of the 3rd millennium BC. The great pyramid of King Cheops, also known as Giza, is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient Word still standing. It is the highest (150m) and oldest of the three.

It sometimes happens that visitors find the Pyramids less impressive than they were expecting, especially since the city of Cairo has been expanding and growing closer to the site. It is only after you've spent several hours on the plateau, facing the desert, that you get a full sense of their grandeur.
