"Sakkara - The old kingdom tombs." Saqqara Pyramid of Djoser & Necropolis Tip by K.Knight
Saqqara Pyramid of Djoser & Necropolis, Cairo: 70 reviews and 140 photos
As I mentioned earlier, Anne and I were very impressed with the tombs of the old kingdom which are home to the most beautiful ?reliefs? and hieroglyphics depicting daily life. These hieroglyphics are painted on masonry that appears as though it could have been laid only a few years ago!
One thing you learn very quickly in Egypt is that ?most? of the guards, guides and tourist police are open to bribery. In fact, it seems to part of their every day life. You can offer a bribe for most ?access? or ?photographic? issues and the worst that can happen is that you are met with a polite ?no.?.....How do you think I got these photographs!!!!
Address: South of Cairo
Directions: West of Cairo - Aswan Agriculture Rd.
