Visiting The Wonders of The World

Ancient Wonders of The World

Did you know from the original seven wonders of the world Colossus of Rhodes, Great Pyramid of GizaHanging Gardens of Babylon, Lighthouse of Alexandria, Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Temple of Artemis at Ephesus only one is still standing? The Great Pyramid of Giza was built in 2550BC by Pharaoh Khufu. It is said to be the largest pyramid in Giza standing at 481 feet. Located on the Giza Plateau just outside of Cairo.

The ancient Egyptians believed that these monumental tombs prepared them for the afterlife, where they believed they would become gods. Today you can visit inside this original wonder of the world, but it is not for the faint hearted or those that suffer from Claustrophobia. Why not take a cruise down the River Nile stopping to see and witness the ancient pyramids in Egypt?
