The climate of Giza (Egypt)
Giza is one of the most important tourist destinations in Egypt. Giza is located on the Nile in the northern part of Egypt. Giza is a suburb of Cairo and famous for the large pyramids and the sphinx that can be found here. The image of these enormous structures in the desert is well-known to many people. A total of three large pyramids can be found in Giza. The pyramids of Cheops, Chefren and Mykerinos. Several smaller pyramids called the Queen pyramids and the sphinx can also be found here. The latter has given rise to many speculations and wild stories for quite a number of years now. There are several myths, legends and semi-truths surrounding the sphinx and the pyramids. Even historians are not sure how old the sphinx is and what it stands for. Giza has a desert climate. This type of climate is characterized by very warm summers and mild winters. Rainfall is very rare here. Although temperatures are high during the day they may drop during the evening and night and can even give you a cold feel. Differences in temperature of 20 degrees Celsius between day and night are not uncommon.
