Glorious Giza

In view of the recent unrest in Cairo, we advise travellers to check the latest updates and travel information on the UK's Foreign Commonwealth Office website.

If you’re looking for a getaway jam-packed with history and culture, there’s no better reason to embark on holidays to Giza.

With a short jaunt from Egypt’s capital of Cairo, Giza is the ultimate destination for holidaymakers looking to catch a glimpse of some of the most wondrous sites of the ancient world. From the famous Pyramids of Giza to the majestic Sphinx, you’ll find an array of wondrous treasures to discover – be prepared for the holiday of a lifetime.

Ancient Wonders

One of the Seven Wonders in the World is on offer on Giza holidays. The largest of the three pyramids, Cheops was constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks and still stands today, awaiting your exploration. Dating back to 2560 BC, this grand structure is a must-visit for your Egypt getaway, while the Solar Barque museum situated nearby also offers a chance to see an ancient boat made to help Pharaohs in the afterlife.

If you still haven’t got your fill of Egyptian culture on your holidays in Giza, head to Luxor to see the famous ruins of the Temple of Karnak. Take the journey to see the tombs at the famed Valley of the Kings, finishing up with a visit to Tutankhamun’s burial chamber.

After all that culture, you’ll be in need of a dose of beachside relaxation and a visit to Alexandria is likely to fulfil your fantasies of sand and sunshine. Renowned as the Pearl of the Mediterranean, this was once the capital city of Egypt, so there’s plenty of history to uncover too.
