Sam's Exotic Travels to Giza Egypt, A Popular Tourist Destination for 2500 Years
Giza (also known as Gizah or el-Gīzah) is a town in Egypt on the west bank of the Nile river, some 20 km southwest of central Cairo and now part of the greater Cairo metropolis. It is the capital of the Al Jizah Governorate, and is located near the northeast border of this governorate. It has a population of 2.7 million in the city proper. Giza is most famous as the location of the Giza Plateau: the site of some of the most impressive ancient monuments in the world, including a complex of ancient Egyptian royal mortuary and sacred structures, including the Great Sphinx, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and a number of other large pyramids and temples.
I had two trips to the Great Pyramids, so follow the links below to see the historic sites:
