Giza: In the shadow of the pyramids Giza, Egypt's third largest city is just 20 km from Cairo on the west bank of the Nile River. Nowadays a bustling modern city with close to 3 million inhabitants, its place in history is defined by the three Great Pyramids which, along with the Sphinx, have occupied the Giza plateau for 4500 years. The first, and tallest at 148 m, was constructed by Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops) around 2550 BC to prepare for his transition into the afterlife. His son Pharaoh Khafre built a second necropolis for himself 30 years later, which included the limestone monument the Sphinx, whose majestic lion's body and Pharaonic head stand sentinel over the epic tombs. The third pyramid, with its complex mortuary temple, was erected by Pharaoh Menkaure circa 2490 BC. All three pyramids are surrounded by palaces and temples to the gods. Inside the tombs, astoundingly preserved art depicts the daily lives of ancient Egyptians, as well as burial practices and religious rituals. Mercure hotel guests are treated to luxury and comfort throughout the hotel, and are moments away from experiencing one of the Seven Wonders of the World and its unforgettable vision of eternity.
