The Pyramid Of Meidum

Unfortunately, this is one of Egypt’s forgotten sites, and it is rarely visited. Most modern travelers primarily visit sites such as the Pyramids of Giza, or the Step Pyramid of Sakkara. I have noticed, in the last few years, that some travel agencies are starting to organize trips, to thePyramid of Meidum and the Pyramid of Dashur, in a one-day […]

The Pyramids Of Dahshur

The Pyramids of Dahshour encapsulate ancient Egypt. Although places like the Giza Plateau are greater tourist sites, Dahshour is something akin to a great book, telling us great and glorious stories of Ancient Egyptian History. Dahshour is one of Memphis’s most important cemeteries and is one of many vast necropoleis located in the great Ancient Egypt Capital. Located about 30Km […]

The pyramids of Ancient Egypt were built as tombs for kings (and queens), and it was an exclusive honor to have such […]

Winter is mild with some rain, but usually, it is bright, sunny days with cold nights. During the summertime, sun […]

Egypt Culture And Traditions

Egypt’s culture and customs are truly cosmopolitan and the perfect fusion of many of the other cultures and traditions here. Here the tradition, introduced by pharaohs is prevalent as well as the tribal culture and traditions, and even the customs of invaders are somehow seen present amidst modern Egypt. It’s like a melting pot here, where […]
