The Giza necropolis includes the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Pyramid of Khafre, the Pyramid of Menkaure, and many other bucket-list-worthy monuments and tombs.
2. Go see he Sphinx
The majestic Sphinx statue is a must-see for anybody visiting Egypt. The Sphinx, a symbol of ancient Egypt, is a mythical creature with a human head and a lion body. It is Egypt’s earliest known monumental sculpture and one of the world’s most recognizable statues.
3. Ride a camel
The camel, a symbol of desert traders, first springs to mind when you think of Egypt. For a long time in the past, the Egyptians used camels as a means of transportation. It is now more of a tourist activity. To make your visit to the pyramids of Giza extra special, ride a camel there.
