Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos


The Step Pyramid of King Zoser goes back to 2700 BC. It is one of the oldest stone structures in the world, and one of the first times the Egyptians would use limestone. The area is also the site of many tombs from the 1st and 2nd dynasties. Most of the tombs are made of mud bricks, but some are made of limestone. The pyramid is 60m high and has 6 steps.
