15 Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Egypt

8. Ancient Memphis

Ancient Memphis
The Memphis Sphinx, unlike the sphinx at the Giza Plateau, still has her, or his, symbolic beard. It’s thought it could be a likeness of Queen Hatshepsut.
Ancient Memphis is a taxi ride south of Giza and near the older pyramids mentioned below. There’s not a whole lot to see there but the Memphis sphinx and giant Rameses statues are great to see. Don’t make a special trip, but visit if you go to Saqqara.
