Busy, bustling and bursting with life, Giza is Egypt’s third largest city, boasting a population of just over 3.6 million. Situated on the West Bank of the Nile and close to Cairo, it is best known as the home of the Pyramids and the Sphinx, astounding antiquities dating back to the 26th century BC. Although hugely delayed, the new Egyptian Museum is currently rising like a 21th Century Ark – it's where many of the treasures of the existing Cairo Museum will find a more suitable home.
