About Great Pyramid of Giza

Home to the last remaining ancient wonder of the world, the Great Pyramids of Giza are one of the world's most iconic landmarks. Rising out of the desert, yet enveloped by the city of Egypt, these mammoth structures must be seen to be believed. Photos glimpse at their design, but only when stood beneath a 137-metre pyramid can the scale of these monuments be appreciated. Photogenic from afar and baffling from up close, the Great Pyramids of Giza are Egypt's premier attraction and a virtually unmissable icon when visiting Cairo. Although other pyramids can be found elsewhere in the country, these are the highest and largest of them all.

The pyramids are located on the Giza Plateau in the suburb of Giza, which is found in the west of Cairo. An inspiring way to start is to use the entrance gate beside the Sphinx, the ethereal sandstone gatekeeper to the ancient tombs. It's worth visiting as early as possible to avoid the rush of tour buses that arrive in the middle of the morning. The Great Pyramid of Khufu dominates the landscape, as it is the largest constructed in Egypt and was an ancient world wonder as declared by the Greeks. Behind this is the Solar Museum, which recreates how a pharaoh was buried.

Visitors must purchase an entry ticket to visit the Giza Plateau, rather than tickets for individual pyramids. While the Great Pyramid of Khufu is the largest, the Pyramid of Menkaure has a more elaborate and interesting interior. The Pyramid of Khafre is the third in the trio of wonders, and when visitors find the right angle, it can appear taller than its bigger neighbour.
These wonders are situated within Cairo, and a taxi from anywhere in the centre of the city is the quickest and easiest way to travel. An alternative is to take Cairo Metro to Giza Station then walk through a tunnel towards the monuments.

The importance of the Sphinx can't be understated when exploring the Great Pyramids of Giza. Egyptians have always called it Abu-el-Hol, which translates as the “Father of Terror.” This remarkable structure was carved from a single block of sandstone and once stood guard to the pharaohs who were buried in the pyramids.
