  • Amazing Place, you should visit Enjoy seeing photos. usually I focus on Architectural details and materials

  • Saqqara is a wonderful area. I love to go there. I have gone there for over than 20 time. Every time I see something new and guess what? I still need to go there for over 100 times to see the whole area.

  • If Visiting Saqqara Necropolis as positioned by Google Maps (September 2019) please note that you will need to walk some distance into the desert to reach the pyramids (as shown in the attached images). If it is the traditional stepped Pyramid you are looking for, follow directions on Google to the Pyramid of Djoser and make use of the parking area and routes from there to various sites.

  • It's wonderful, full of artifacts and exploration!

  • Arriving into Cairo the first thing I wanted to do was travel out to Saqqara to visit the first pyramid that started it all. Getting a taxi from Cairo you leave the city and enter the Delta and into the desert. People are there to make money from the tourists and as we did in awe of the Necropolis two people took the hat from my head, took my camera and walked is to their donkey. After discussion we had to pay to get our stuff back but also got a ride around on their donkey with their robes. Total scam but enjoyed the experience.
