Most people know the famous pyramids at Giza. But Im betting that most (like me before I got to Egypt) didn't know there were more. Yep, there are!
As a part of our time in the Cairo area, we got to check out the historical burial grounds at Saqqara, including the Pyramid of Djoser. While not as impressive compared to the Giza pyramids, the site is amazing, especially because its so large. There's pyramids, tombs, and a host of other archaeological curiosities there. Great spot for a day trip on its own, but I would definitely try to do it in conjunction with the Pyramids at Giza.
