Saqqara Necropolis, Giza, Egypt  

They may not be as famous as the Pyramids of Giza, but Saqqara’s necropolis is where pyramid building in Egypt first began. An easy day trip from Cairo, Saqqara and the surrounding pyramids of Dahshur and Abu Sir are a showcase of the early architecture of the pharaohs. The Step Pyramid, the Bent Pyramid, and the Red Pyramid are some of the Old Kingdom’s most dazzling treasures, and for history lovers, a journey here is a must-do on any Cairo tourist itinerary.
