A stop of my AIDA cruise was Port Said, about 200 km from Cairo.
Pyramids of Gizeh
We wanted to see the pyramids of Gizeh and took the distance in purchasing. Unfortunately, that day was a national holiday in Cairo or Egypt and the traffic was really crazy. Everywhere honking cars and exhaust fumes.
The pyramids were constructed between 2620-2500 v. Chr.
Cheops pyramid: this is the biggest and the most famous pyramid of Pharaoh Khufu. Height: 146 m, still 138 m
Khafre’s Pyramid: middle pyramid, which is a bit smaller.
Menkaure pyramid: small pyramid which 65m and thus less than half that was as the other two.
Grave of Chentkaus, the so-called fourth pyramid.
Do you have recommendations for food or accommodations in Cairo?
