The Giza

Giza is, of course, the home of Egypt's best known pyramids, including the largest one in Egypt, that of Khufu, the only remaining wonder of the ancient world. This is were the Egyptian pyramids matured.
Giza is actually one of several necropolises that served the ancient city of the White Walls, otherwise known to the Greeks as Memphis.
In addition to the major pyramids, there are also at least six pyramids built for queens, together with even smaller cult pyramids
There are also many tombs, a number of temples, worker villages and the famous Great Sphinx.
This is one of the major tourist attractions for Egypt, and a monumental heritage site for the world.
