Giza is home to perhaps the greatest iconic structures ever created by man - the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Instantly familiar yet retaining a mystique and power, getting up close to these incredible pharaonic tombs is captivating. One of the world’s great museums, the idea of seeing all of the Egyptian Museum’s treasures in a day is as laughable as scaling one of the Pyramids before breakfast. Better to excavate the highlights, and the mummies are definitely that. Coming face to face with the well-preserved faces of Egypt’s glorious dead is the stuff of childhood dreams. Release your inner Boris Karloff, and check it out.
