Cairo has a lot to live up to; the jewel of the orient, the city of one thousand minarets and the melting-pot of ancient and modern civilizations are just a few of its monikers. To take in some of the city’s magnitude, take a once-in-a-lifetime tour to the best heritage of the city; the Giza Pyramids, the Sphinx and the Egyptian Museum of the Antiquities.
It’s not a coincidence the Great Pyramid is on everybody’s travelling list; it’s the only wonder of the ancient world still standing. Built out of local limestone, the Great Pyramid has got more than two million stone blocks and weighs six million tons! Amazingly enough, this mind-boggling structure was raised at a time the ancient Egyptians didn’t even made the wheel or the pulley!! How on earth did they build it??!!!
Proceed to the enigmatic Sphinx, the man-headed lion guarding the Pyramids since the 3rd millennium BC. About 20 meters long, 20 meters high and 8 meters wide, this mysterious statue is made out of one single piece of stone, carved out of one a natural outcrop. The Valley Temple, where the ancient Egyptian kings were mummified, houses some blocks that weigh more than 400 tons!!!
You can extend the this tour with a visit to the Egyptian Museum on Tahrir Square.
Built back in 1901, the Egyptian Museum has rapidly become Cairo’s tourist landmark. This Museum houses the best collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the entire world. It’s at this museum that you see the magnificent collection of the famous boy- king Tut-ankh-amon with its amazing craftsmanship. You also see the impressive mummies of the ancient Egyptian kings which still have tissue, hair, fingernails and teeth.
