Pyramids of Giza, Giza

#1 of 174 in Things to do in Giza
The last of the original Seven Wonders of the World, Pyramids of Giza include a complex of World Heritage-listed ancient monuments, including the Great Pyramid. Dating back to around 2560 BCE, the pyramids were built by thousands of workers under the command of successive pharaohs, with teams of men carving millions of stone blocks at nearby quarries, transporting them to the site, then lifting them into position. The pyramids were used as tombs for the pharaohs, with interior temples, chambers, and galleries filled with offerings. The three main pyramids testify to the power of the pharaohs and the ingenuity of the ancient Egyptians--they have also inspired countless artists, architects, and rulers since their construction.

  • Much better from the outside. It is amazing that we could go inside, but it isn't a fun crawl/scramble to get inside. I entered 2 pyramids (Red Pyramid and Great) and tombs are much more interesting, pretty and no scrambling/crawling required.
  • Pyramids are great , may be oldest tourist site in the world. Amazing creation. But lot of locals makes it as tourist trap. They ask you questions or involve you in discussion and ask money later. They make it impossible to stand at one point for long.
