These are the best viewpoints of the Pyramids of Giza

Seeing the Pyramids up close is a great thrill. And also enter them, as we told you in this other post. However, you will also want to stand a little further away from them to be able to admire them as a whole and capture them in the same photo. For this reason, in this article we will tell you which are the best viewpoints of the Pyramids of Giza, to which we can take you during your trip.

Viewpoints of the Pyramids for a group photo 

If you want to take a photo in which you can see the three Pyramids, then you can opt for one of these two viewpoints:

  • Viewpoint of the Pyramids. Its English name is Panoramic View of the Pyramids. It is located in front of the Pyramid of Mycerinus (the smallest of the three). This viewpoint is usually visited by large organized groups, for reasons of proximity and framing. It is from where you can take the classic photo that, by optical effect, can look like you are holding a pyramid in the palm of your hand. This is its exact position on Google Maps (Plus Code: X4CC+X8 Al Haram, Egypt)

  • Alternative viewpoint. For many travelers, this one is better than the previous one, since in the frame you can see not only the three great pyramids, but also the small pyramids of more queens. The problem is that it is not signposted as such and is about 20 minutes walk from the previous one, but there are many people who offer to take tourists there on camels. This is the exact position on Google Maps (Plus Code: X49J+54 Al Haram, Egypt)

Viewpoint to see the Pyramids aligned 

Special mention should be made of the third of the Pyramids’ viewpoints: the Pyramid alignment viewpoint.

(Plus Code: X49F+783 Al Haram, Egypt). Curiously, from here you cannot see all the pyramids in their entirety, but rather the almost perfect alignment formed by the three main pyramids. We already talked about the alignment of the pyramids in this other post, so if you are curious to see this geometric perfection, this will be the ideal place to understand it.

Other ways to see the Pyramids from afar: the hotels 

If you are not satisfied with having the pyramids only in sight for a short time (as long as the visit to the necropolis of Giza lasts), you can opt for another solution: stay in one of the hotels from whose rooms and restaurants you can see the Pyramids in the background. In them, there is a terrace strategically located so that, while having breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a drink, you can contemplate the beauty and immensity of these buildings in the background. Sometimes they even serve as an idyllic place for spiritual exercises at the beginning of the day.

One of them is the Marriott Mena House. However, you can contact Egipto Exclusivo to arrange your trip with us, as this and other hotels in Giza are the ones we often include in our travel packages. We will make your accommodation the best in the world. viewpoints of the Pyramids of Giza!
