Stop At: Dahshur, Cairo Egypt

Dashur is not as popular among tourists as, say, Giza with the great pyramids. Nevertheless, there is something to see. Dashur is located about 30 km from Cairo and therefore, if you have an excursion to the Egyptian capital, it is worth stopping by here.

Dashur is famous for its pyramids built during the reign of the great pharaoh Snofru. By the way, scientists consider these structures to be the first tombs in the history of the king, erected according to new types of structures.
Another attraction in Dahshur is the Bent Pyramid got its name due to the irregular shape. At its construction, the builders for some reason changed the angle of the faces. Perhaps the Egyptians simply made a mistake, but historians attribute this construction move to the architects' concern for the strength and durability of the pyramid. The main thing, one can say, is the “revolutionary” difference between the Dashur Broken Pyramid and other Egyptian structures in that it has two entrances - the “traditional” northern one and almost no southern one.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Saqqara (Sakkara) Pyramids, Al Giza Desert, Giza Egypt

Pharaoh Djoser from the III dynasty was the first of the Egyptian pharaohs to build a tomb in Saqqara. Before him, all the pharaohs were buried in the city of Abydos. He erected the first pyramid in Egypt, which has been preserved here to this day. It is Joser's step pyramid that is the main local attraction.
