They are a testament to the engineering and architectural skills of the ancient Egyptians. You will see the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the largest man-made structure in history, the Pyramid of Khafre, which still retains some of its original casing stones, and the Pyramid of Menkaure, which is covered by granite blocks at its base.
  • The Great Sphinx: This colossal statue of a lion with a human head is one of the most mysterious and iconic symbols of Egypt. It is believed to represent the pharaoh Khafre, who built his pyramid next to it. It is carved from a single block of limestone and measures 73 meters long and 20 meters high. It also has a small temple between its paws and a wishing well where visitors can toss coins and make wishes.
  • The Egyptian Museum: This museum houses the largest and most comprehensive collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the world. It contains over 120,000 items, ranging from mummies, statues, jewelry, tools, weapons, and papyri.
