There are few sites on earth as easily recognizable as the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, located just outside the capital city of Cairo. The complex consists of three main pyramids, a few smaller pyramids, the Sphinx and ruins of other structures. The three main pyramids are the Pyramid of Khufu (or Great Pyramid), Pyramid of Khafre and Pyramid of Menkaure, with Khufu being the largest of the structures. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must see when visiting Egypt and it is the perfect opportunity to learn fascinating information about the days of the Pharaohs.
