Giza Plateau

The Giza Plateau is located about 15 miles southwest of Cairo and is one of the most important and famous archaeological sites in the world. It is home to the Great Pyramid, the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing.

The Great Pyramid

Khufu’s Pyramid (The Great Pyramid of Giza) is the greatest pyramid of the complex: and is the must-see Ancient Egyptian landmark.

Khafre and Menkaure Piramids

The two smaller pyramids in Giza are those of Khafre and Menkaure. 

Great Sphinx and the Solar Boat Museum

Nearby, on the Giza Plateau, you’ll also find the Great Sphinx and the Solar Boat Museum.

Virtual Tours

The Giza Project, an international collaboration based at Harvard University, aims to assemble and provide access to all archaeological records about the most famous site in the world: the Pyramids, surrounding cemeteries, and settlements of Giza, Egypt.
