Pyramids in Cairo

Surrender yourself to the indescribable magic and allure of the Egyptian pyramids located in and around Cairo, the country’s capital that never sleeps. Contrary to popular belief, these awe-inspiring structures were constructed without the use of slave labor, and they all took a number of decades to complete.

The Great Giza Pyramid which is located adjacent to two other Great Pyramids and the famous Sphinx, is also the last remaining one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Giza Necropolis is Egypt’s top tourist attraction, and it is featured in virtually all Egypt tour packages.
