While you can explore the Giza Plateau and its attractions, the term "ancient city of Giza" may refer more to the modern city of Giza, which has developed around the archaeological site.

You can explore these pyramids, including the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Pyramid of Menkaure. You have the option to enter some of them, but be aware that there may be an additional fee for going inside.

The Great Sphinx of Giza is an impressive statue with the body of a lion and the head of a pharaoh, believed to represent Pharaoh Khafre. You can get up close to the Sphinx and explore its surrounding area.

Pyramid Complexes: Each of the main pyramids has an associated complex of buildings, including mortuary temples and causeways. These complexes provide insights into the religious and funerary practices of ancient Egypt.

Solar Boat Museum: Located near the Great Pyramid, the Solar Boat Museum houses a reconstructed solar boat that was buried with Pharaoh Khufu to transport him to the afterlife. You can visit this museum to see the well-preserved boat.

Sound and Light Show: The Giza Plateau hosts a nightly sound and light show where the history and legends of the pyramids and the Sphinx are narrated with dramatic lighting and sound effects. It's a unique way to experience the site at night.

Camel and Horseback Riding: You can take a camel or horseback ride around the Giza Plateau, which provides a different perspective and an opportunity for memorable photos.

Photography: The Giza Plateau offers incredible photo opportunities. Be sure to capture the grandeur of the pyramids and the Sphinx.
