Pyramids of Giza, Giza

#1 of 177 in Things to do in Giza
The last of the original Seven Wonders of the World, Pyramids of Giza include a complex of World Heritage-listed ancient monuments, including the Great Pyramid. Dating back to around 2560 BCE, the pyramids were built by thousands of workers under the command of successive pharaohs, with teams of men carving millions of stone blocks at nearby quarries, transporting them to the site, then lifting them into position. The pyramids were used as tombs for the pharaohs, with interior temples, chambers, and galleries filled with offerings. The three main pyramids testify to the power of the pharaohs and the ingenuity of the ancient Egyptians--they have also inspired countless artists, architects, and rulers since their construction.

  • 2/10 second time here, this time felt right to review. Would not recommend, far too hot and sand everywhere. Not great  more »
  • The pyramids were the highlight of our visit to Cairo. Truly amazing. The sound and light show that is offered in the evening is cheezy though.  more »
