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.
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.
Another interactive recreation, to be found at http://www.3ds.com/giza3D , was put together by French design company Dassault Systems with material from the archives of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.
