Although the pyramids in Giza are the most well known in Egypt, there are other pyramids in that very area that are often overlooked. One such location is Saqqarah. On this site still stands the first pyramid ever constructed in Egypt. This pyramid, called the Step Pyramid of Zoser, was designed by the architect Imhotep. This man, later known to the Egyptians as a god, is the mummy from the movies of the same name. While these pyramids may not be quite as impressive as the Giza pyramids, it's a neat experience to see the evolution of pyramids during the times of the pharaoh. Saqqarah is a very short drive from the pyramids at Giza, and included in this day trip can be Memphis (the old capital of Egypt) and Dahshur.
