Pyramids of Giza
The Giza Necropolis ("Pyramids of Giza") is an archaeological site on the Giza Plateau, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt. This complex of ancient monuments includes the three pyramid complexes known as the Great Pyramids, the massive sculpture known as the Great Sphinx, several cemeteries, a workers' village and an industrial complex. It is located some 9 km (5 mi) inland into the desert from the old town of Giza on the Nile, some 25 km (15 mi) southwest of Cairo city centre. The pyramids, which have always loomed large as emblems of ancient Egypt in the Western imagination, were popularised in Hellenistic times, when the Great Pyramid was listed by Antipater of Sidon as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is by far the oldest of the ancient Wonders and the only one still in existence. Source: Wikipedia
Our experience was totally spoild by cameldrivers and other aggressiv sellers. We are very sorry, because we have been looking foreward to the visit. Our advise is: do not smile , do not be nice, do not answer when somebody say hello, do not accept gifts. That's sad, but it's how it is.
It deceived me a lot. After watching so many movies and pictures your really believe the pyramids are in the middle of the desert, but surprise! when I arrived there the pyramids were surrounded by parking lots, houses, a nearby cemetery, and thousands of chairs for the light and sound show. The stucco of the pyramids has fallen and is only left on the tip of the medium one: Kefren. Sincerely Mexico's pyramids are better cared for and impressing.
Wow wow wow is all i can say. I can't believe how big this pyramid really is, it is absolutely huge! I was very impressed with it, and i enjoyed going inside to see the Queens Chamber.
The pyramid is one of the most beautiful artifacts i have ever seen!
