"The Great Pyramids of Giza" Pyramids of Giza by MM212

Pyramids of Giza Travel Guide: 441 reviews and 1,432 photos

When Alexander the Great conquered Egypt in the 4th century BC, the Pyramids of Giza were already over 2000 years old! The only survivors of the seven wonders of the ancient world were thus ancient to the ancient world. Over 4500 years after their construction, they continue to mesmerise us with their ingenuity and size. They were built to last and will likely outlast any structure of the modern age. Every person should visit the Pyramids at least once in their lifetime, for it is not until one is in front of them that one appreciates their greatness.

The Pyramids of Giza are located about 20 minutes south-west of the great city of Cairo. An afternoon or a morning at the pyramids should be on any traveller's itinerary when visiting Cairo.

    I love camel rides, and it seems like a fun thing to do around the pyramids. I would also LOVE the perfume gallery. Nice tips of different pyramids and burial tombs, with good pics.

    Loved the view of the horses beside the pyramid.That's an unusual view appreciated by a somewhat jaded former resident of Cairo.

    Glad to know that Pyramids are still at their places in December of 2007! Thanks for refreshing sweet memories. Best wishes to Momo from Moscow in our Russian Orthodox Christmas Eve...

    Pas facile de faire une très bonne page sur une destination aussi classique. C’est un “challenge” que tu as gagné, bravo!
