In classical antiquity , and is the only one to have Seven Wonders of the Worldit was considered as one of the 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. Visit to the Valley Temple. Continue the tour to Sakkara, 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 standsat the center of a vast quadrangular precinct dedicated to the afterlife of King Djoser of the Third Dynasty. Lunch at local restaurant. 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.
