During the Old Kingdom, from 3100 B.C. to 2200 B.C., Memphis was the capital of Egypt. Memphis contains a large necropolis full of great pyramids, tombs, and monuments scattered throughout its Pyramid Fields.

The Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur is filled with ancient wonders of the world, giving insight to civilizations long ago. Giza, close to Cairo, has the amazing Great Pyramids, the huge Great Sphinx sculpture, numerous cemeteries, small villages, and other interesting areas.

Dahshur, also not far from Cairo, is known for the royal necropolis and contains the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid. The great Step Pyramid of Zoser is also a sight to behold.
