ARTS & CULTURE
On the edge of Cairo with its multi-million population, you can see them clearly rising out of the desert sand: the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza. For thousands of years, these majestic structures have symbolised the Ancient Egyptians and their fascinating civilisation. Strolling between man-sized lion paws and beautiful hieroglyphics, you’ll imagine yourself in the time of the pharaohs.
