It's something that you have to visit when you are there: Memphis, Sakkara and Gizeh.
Memphis is a little open air museum. The most important thing to see are the big sculpture of Ramses II inside a little building and the sfinx outside..... Daily open from 9 am untill 4 pm.
Memphis was once the capitol of Egypt, many of the statues here have been damaged, this is an alabaster sphinx. Tutankhamun was reputed to have a liking for alabaster and it is thought that this sphinx may be from the time of his reign
This is a living recreation of the days of ancient Egypt. You will sail on a barge down a canal to view the tableaux. You will see recreations of industries, games, arts, historic and legendary scenes.
