Breakfast at hotel. Pick up by our representative & transfer to enjoy a tour to Giza Pyramids. Khufu's pyramid is the northernmost and largest of the three. In classical antiquity it was considered as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and is the only one to have survived. Khephren's monument can be easily identified by the casing stones that still cling to its pointed top. The much smaller pyramid of Mycerinus had not been completed by the time of the king's death. Its intended granite revetment was only partially applied. The Great Sphinx is part of the funerary complex of Khephren. Its impressive leonine body with the royal head is sculpted in an outcrop of the native limestone. Part of the face, including the nose, has been deliberately damaged. The false beard has fallen off and is currently kept at the British Museum. Tour to the Valley Temple. Wonderful tour to the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities near Tahrir Square in Cairo, which has the richest and most important collection of objects from Ancient Egypt in the world. The collection is constantly growing since the museum is the primary recipient of any finds made on the soil of Egypt. There you can contemplate the precious treasures of Tutankhamon, most famous king of the Ancient Egypt. The museum includes a Mummy Chamber with extra cost. Back to hotel. Overnight in Cairo
Breakfast at hotel. Transfer to enjoy a tour to Saqqara, an immense field of tombs, the final resting place of kings, noblemen, lesser Egyptians and mummified animals. Probably named after Sokkar, the mummified falcon-god of the dead, Sakkara served as the official necropolis of Egypt's main capital city, Memphis. Its most prominent landmark is the famous Step Pyramid which stands at the center of a vast quadrangular precinct dedicated to the afterlife of King Djoser of the Third Dynasty. Continue to the most important city of pharaonic times, Memphis, which was the administrative capital of Ancient Egypt, the main royal residence and the seat of both the northern Vizier and High Priest of the state god Ptah. There, you can contemplate the large alabaster sphinx, probably representing Amenhotep III (18th Dynasty), and a colossal prostrate limestone statue of King Ramesses II (19th Dynasty). Back to hotel. Overnight in Cairo.
Breakfast at hotel. Transfer to visit Saladin Citadel, located on the spur of the Muqattam hills. It was the seat of government and home of almost all rulers of Egypt.
