Saqqara (Sakkara) Tours

408 Reviews
Saqqara (Sakkara)
Set about 18 miles (30 km) south of Cairo, Saqqara (Sakkara) was the burial site for the ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis, now in ruins. The site features a small sphinx, smaller than that at the Pyramids of Giza, and several pyramids, the most famous of which is the stepped pyramid of Djoser dating from 2650 BC, which represented a major advance in building techniques.

Another 16 kings also built their tombs at Saqqara, and the area was used as a burial site until well into Roman times. In 1979, UNESCO named the area a World Heritage site.

Practical Info

The best way to get to Saqqara is by guided tour or by hiring a private car.
