World Heritage Site #57: Memphis and its Necropolis – the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur

From the World Heritage inscription:

The capital of the Old Kingdom of Egypt has some extraordinary funerary monuments, including rock tombs, ornate mastabas, temples and pyramids. In ancient times, the site was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

There isn’t much I can say about the pyramids because everyone has seen at least one National Geographic special on them and probably did a presentation on them in 4th grade. Visiting the pyramids was one of the most frustrating experiences I’ve ever had from a tourist perspective.

  2. You can’t leave us hanging Gary. How was it frustrating?

    When I went to Giza I had a great time. Crowds were there and expected but nothing out of the ordinary. Would like to hear your experience.
