Giza, located on the outskirts of Cairo, is a city known for its iconic historical sites, particularly the Giza Plateau, which houses the famous Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. While the pyramids are the main draw, Giza offers several popular activities and attractions for visitors to enjoy:

Visit the Pyramids of Giza: Explore the world-famous Pyramids of Giza, including the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops), the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure. You can enter some of these pyramids to explore their interiors.

Great Sphinx: Marvel at the Great Sphinx of Giza, a colossal statue with the body of a lion and the head of a pharaoh. It's a must-see attraction located near the pyramids.

Pyramid Light and Sound Show: Attend the Pyramid Sound and Light Show held in the evenings to learn about the history of the pyramids through a multimedia presentation set against the backdrop of the illuminated pyramids and Sphinx.

Camel and horseback riding: Experience a camel or horseback ride in the desert around the pyramids. It's a unique way to explore the area and offers fantastic photo opportunities.

Panoramic Views: Head to the panoramic viewpoints in the area, such as the Giza Plateau and the Mokkatam Hills, for stunning vistas of the pyramids and Cairo's skyline.

Solar Boat Museum: Visit the Solar Boat Museum, located near the Great Pyramid, to see the reconstructed solar boat that was buried next to the pyramid of Khufu for the pharaoh's afterlife journey.

Valley Temple: Explore the Valley Temple of Khafre, an ancient mortuary temple located next to the Pyramid of Khafre. It is well preserved and offers insights into ancient Egyptian architecture.
