Im planning to go to Egypt within cople of weeks.Are there any other interesting places in Giza or around Giza area than the pyramids?Is it possible to spend 3days in Egypt for Giza trip,Alexandria, and Cairo?Any advices will be greatly appreciated.
If you stay in the village of Giza it is an exellent starting point for Sakkara, Dashur, AbuSir, Memphis and also central Cairo.
If you need a place to stay I know of a wonderful guest house just in front of the sphinx and pyramids :)
Giza is fundamentally the residential (&recent)suburb of Cairo.Not much other than pyramids &c.
Travelling to Alex & back will take a big chunk of a three day trip. Stay in Cairo, there's more than enough of interest there.
I agree with the others. Best spend 3 days in Cairo and see everything you can. I spend 4 days in Cairo.... and I never got to see all the place I heard/wanted to see...and hence me returning next year. Alexandria is good too but just a bit too far away for a short period of time like this.
Have a great trip and chek out the tips on Cairo in VT..:)
Thank you very much for your info.
