Create an itinerary including Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids
A World Heritage Site, Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids once provided the final resting place for the pharaohs and nobles of Memphis. The ensemble of pyramids and mastabas (tombs made of mud bricks) covers a huge area of the desert--this site was used as a burial ground for around 3,000 years. The main structures include the Pyramid of Djoser, constructed by the royal architect Imhotep--it's possibly the oldest intact stone building in the world.

  • It was a great experience to witness the first pyramid built! It's a little pricey and short but the sight at the end of it can be worth it based on how much you enjoy Egypt's history. The tombs nearby are cool too.
  • Just incredible.. Smaller than the great pyramid, but no less impressive... Definitely worth a trip outside of Cairo!
