Google Street View Goes to Egypt
The Google Street View team sent its 360-degree cameras to Egypt to capture panoramic images of some of the world's most famous archaeological wonders.
All three of the Great Pyramids of Giza can be seen while virtually wandering this street.
Using Google Street View, you can get as close to the Sphinx as these tourists.
Google didn't just add the pyramids to its Street View tool. It also added imagery of other sites in Egypt, like the Citadel of Cairo, a medieval Islamic fortification shown here.
Pyramid of Djoser
Before the Great Pyramids of Giza, there was the Step Pyramid of Djoser, which was built in Saqqara about 4,700 years ago. It started out as a flat-roofed tomb but then evolved into a 197-foot-high (60 meters) pyramid.
Built in the 3rd century, Abu Mena is a Coptic Christian site that houses the ruins of an ancient church, a baptistry, basilicas, public buildings, streets, monasteries, houses and workshops, according to UNESCO.
