If you're leery about taking a trip to Egypt just now, Google can at least give you part of the experience with new Pyramids of Giza Street View imagery. That includes the Great Pyramid, the only remaining ancient wonder of the ancient world that's still standing, along with the Great Sphinx and Imhotep's Pyramid of Djoser. As befitting the addition of such a famous landmark, Google also included a raft of extras: imagery from the Abu Mena Christian site, the medieval Cairo Citadel fortification and other iconic spots. From there, you can head to the Google Cultural Institute's Egyption Pyramid gallery and see archival photos and drawings. As we found, you'll be able to while away a few enjoyable hours, and (we think) a digital tour carries a minimal risk of any curses.
