Ancient attractions on your doorstep

Located a 20-minute drive from Cairo on the west bank of the Nile, Giza is one of the most historic places to stay in the world. Home to beautiful monuments that date back more than 2,000 years, this remarkable destination has a wealth of attractions for you to explore. 

Standing on the limestone Giza Plateau, the most iconic of the local sights is the Great Pyramid, which is one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. A cedar barge found near the pyramid is displayed in the Solar Boat Museum, while the Great Sphinx of Giza is another remarkably well-preserved monument, rising more than 200 feet into the sky.

You can swap pharaohs for flora, fauna, and exotic animals at the Giza Zoo, which is a popular spot for families in the downtown part of the city. Meanwhile, El Haram is a bustling neighbourhood offering lots of dining and entertainment options, as well as the Grand Egyptian Museum, which is set to open its doors for the first time in early 2024.
