The Giza Necropolis

The Giza Necropolis is the place where the famous Great Pyramids as well as the The Great Sphinx of Giza are located.

The greatest of them is the Great Pyramid of Khufu (or Cheops) :

The second largest is the Pyramid of Khafre (or Chephren) :

The smallest of the three Great Pyramids is the Pyramid of Menkaure . In the south of the pyramid of Menkaure (as well as at the east of the pyramid of Khufu) there are three smaller pyramids, for the wifes of the King:

The area is quite large, so, if you choose to walk, you may become tired.

But don't worry: In this case, you will find a shady place where you can sit down, the pyramids are large enough.

The alternative would be to hire some sort of transport. There are different possibilities. One would be to hire a carriage. Another, quite exotic one to ride a camel. As well, you can also ride a horse.

You can also hire a guide. Even if you don't want to hire a gide, you will be confronted with a lot of "offers" by some local "guides", which sometimes may be quite pesky and annoying.
