W have learned about the ancient Wonders of the World in school but did you know that the pyramids of Giza is among the only ones remaining till today?
Most people spend a maximum of two hours there, but I would recommend you spend at least three hours, as there are a lot to see. There is a lot of visitors around 10 so I would recommend you go there at 8, you will avoid the crowd and the heat.
When you finish visiting the pyramids, you will have time to visit the Egyptian museum, it contains the largest collection of artifacts, a lot of statues and treasures.
It will take you 30 min from the Giza Plateau to the Egyptian Museum. You will spend approximately 2 hours at the museum.

Day 3: Dahshur, Memphis; Saqqara and Fly To Aswan
On day 3 you will leave Cairo for Dahshur and Saqqara that will allow you to see the oldest and best preserved pyramids in Egypt.
In Dahshur you will witness the oldest pyramids, they were constructed between 2613 and 2589 BC. They tried to build smooth pyramid but unfortunately did not succeed but their second attempt namely the ‘red pyramid’ was a success.
Going inside the pyramid
The interior of Egypt’s ‘bent’ pyramid may be reached by traveling via a 256-foot tunnel that leads to two chambers deep within the monument. The 4,600-year-old edifice, which came after stepped-sided pyramids and before straight-sided pyramids like the Great Pyramid of Giza, played an important role in the evolution of pyramid construction. It is located near Dahshur, some 17 miles south of central Cairo, and was built for Sneferu, the founder of the Fourth Dynasty.
Ancient Egypt’s original capital was Memphis. The majority of the pyramids located around Cairo, which number in the hundreds, were erected during this time period when Memphis was Egypt’s and maybe the world’s most prominent city.
In Saqqara you will be able to visit the Step Pyramid of Djoser, and the oldest complete stone building complex in the world.
