Visit the ancient city of Memphis founded by the Pharaoh Menes and was the capital of Egypt during the Old Kingdom. It was considered to be the center of rule and culture for over 3000 years and the first capital of Egypt. See the imposing Statue of Ramesses II and walk through the ruins of this ancient capital.
The necropolis of Saqqara is home to the Step Pyramid of Zoser (or Djoser), Egypt's first pyramid which is considered to be one of the earliest large-scale cut stone structures. It was built in the 3rd Dynasty (around 2630 BC) for the pharaoh Djoser. Explore the necropolis of Dahshur with the Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid which is the world's first true smooth-sided pyramid.
