The unification of Egypt is recorded on the famous Narmer Palette which is displayed inside the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, commemorating the king's authority over the two lands in the north and the south of Egypt, to start the recorded history of Egypt in which historians divided into 30 ruling families called dynasties. The 1st dynasty marked the beginning of Egypt's ancient civilization by developing an economic situation, and hence, ancient Egyptians started to focus on writing and other sciences emerged into the light like astronomy and more.

You will explore the open-air museum in Memphis, and see the Alabaster Sphinx of Memphis centering the outdoor museum, with other great artifacts that keep getting more and more thanks to the continuous discoveries by the Ministry of Archaeology expeditions. You will be surprised by the size of the colossal statue of King Ramses II, one of the most legendary kings of Egypt who ruled during the 19th dynasty of the new kingdom, he is also the builder of the great Abu Simbel Temples in Aswan.

We will continue to the site of Dahshur, where you will see two of the most amazing pyramids in Egypt, both of them are created for the same king, Snefru whose mummy was never found inside any of the three pyramids that he built.

Tour the area to see the Red Pyramid, which is the 1st perfect-shaped pyramid in history, slightly smaller than that of King Chephren in Giza necropolis, and that makes the Red Pyramid the third biggest pyramid before the one that belongs to King Mycerinus.

See also the Bent Pyramid and you will notice the outer casing material is almost intact, not like many of the other pyramids, it was called the bent pyramid due to the bent shape it takes at a point before the peak.

You will be transferred back to your hotel after your tour to Memphis and Dahshur is over.
