Take on the last standing Wonder of the Ancient World.
As we’re all stuck indoors, we may as well take a marvel at a great landmark. Thanks to Google Street View, you can take in the stunning Pyramids Of Giza. [Featured Image: Unsplash]
Among the Giza pyramids complex, you will get to potter around like a royal as you check out four great pyramids. First, of course, you’ll be able to view the stunning Great Pyramid. It was built by King Khufu and stood tall as the highest structure on Earth when it was first unveiled.
Then, it’ll be time to visit the Pyramid of Khafre, which was created second. This was built by King Khufu’s son, Khafre, and is slightly smaller than the Great Pyramid.
After this, you can ramble along the desert to be bowled over by the Great Sphinx Sculpture. The stunning sphinx resembles a lion with the head of a man, and is said to have been built by King Khafre.
Finally, to top off the tour, the Pyramid of Menkaure awaits you. This was the final structure to appear, courtesy of Menkaure, Khafre’s son. It is half the height of the Great Pyramid.
So, as we’re all living through online experiences, this is a brilliant option. You can always combine a tour of this great wonder with a virtual Tutankhamun exhibition, an online tour of Tutankhamun’s treasures currently at London’s Saatchi Gallery. When lockdown ends, you’ll be an expert on Ancient Egypt.
