Pyramids of Giza: skip-the-line e-tickets

Whether you're planning a trip to Egypt for the first time or you're a long-term traveler, the Pyramids of Giza are an incredible sight to behold. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your visit.

Dress modestly

Visiting the pyramids of Giza requires some preparation. This includes dressing appropriately. The area surrounding the pyramids is rocky, sandy and uneven. A pair of good sturdy shoes is a must. For those with colder winters, a warm wool or leather jacket is recommended.

Using sunscreen is a must. You may also want to pack eye drops for dust protection.

Wearing the right clothes can make your trip more enjoyable and lessen the chances of unwanted attention. You might not want to wear showy jewelry or a tattered dress.

You might want to consider packing a hat for the occasion. The sun can be a bit harsh, especially during the hot summer months. For windy days, you should also bring a windbreaker.

You should also consider wearing a pair of sunglasses. In addition, you should bring along a pair of sun scarves. These can be used as shoulder wraps and head covers.

The Egyptian Pyramids are among the world's most iconic sights. They are located on the outskirts of Cairo. They are considered a UNESCO site. This means that the pyramids are open to the public every day.

Avoid tourist traps

Visiting the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt can be an awesome experience. However, there are some things you should avoid. These are the best way to avoid being taken for a ride.

The pyramids of Giza are not a desert in the sense that they are in a residential neighborhood. If you take the time to look around you'll find that the pyramids are surrounded by huge tarmac roads.

The Giza Pyramids have been around for thousands of years. They are the only ones that still stand. They are part of a complex that is also home to the Luxor Temple and Valley of Kings.

The most exciting aspect of these pyramids is that they are still intact. You'll be able to see them up close and personal. The complex is about thirty minutes from downtown Cairo. This makes it a great place to visit if you have a couple of days in the area.

The pyramids of Giza are also home to several tourist traps. The Giza pyramids are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so you'll want to be on the lookout for scams.

Khafre's necropolis also includes the Sphinx

Located on the Giza plateau, the Great Sphinx is a monolithic sculpture of a reclining lion with an Egyptian king's head. It is the largest colossal sculpture in the world.

The Sphinx is part of a larger funerary complex credited to Pharaoh Khafre. The pyramids of Khufu and Khafre are situated in the necropolis. The necropolis is composed of a number of smaller satellite edifices.


The Sphinx is the most famous of these statues. It was carved out of limestone on the Giza plateau. It is twenty-two feet high and seventy-three feet long. The Sphinx has a human face, although it is believed that the face was not the original face of the Egyptian king.

The Great Sphinx was built between 2520 B.C. and 2494 B.C. The sculptors were ordered to carve the Sphinx from limestone. The limestone was from a quarry nearby. The necropolis also contains Menkaure's pyramid. It is smaller than the Khafre's pyramid.

Local tips for visiting

Visiting Pyramids of Giza can be an exciting and humbling experience. The three majestic structures are located in Egypt's Giza Plateau, just outside of Cairo.

The best time to visit is early in the morning or in the afternoon. During the summer, it's a good idea to bring an extra pack of sunscreen. The heat of the Egyptian sun can be intense. You will need to protect yourself from the sun with sunglasses, hats, and protective clothing.

The entrance to the pyramids is open from 7 am to 7 pm. However, you should arrive before this to avoid the crowds. You will need to purchase a ticket.

You can also hire a private taxi to shuttle you around the site. There are many hotels in the area that offer rooms with stunning views of the pyramids. These are a great option for travelers who want to spend the day at the pyramids.

Another excellent way to see the pyramids is on a camel ride. The ride takes you past the pyramids and provides amazing views. Be sure to allow yourself enough time to take photographs.

The pyramids were built by a huge workforce over several years. In order to protect the pyramids from the sun, they were made of smooth limestone. They were also originally covered with a gold cap on the highest point. There are three main pyramids in the Giza complex. There are a number of smaller pyramids as well.
