Russian tourists will soon be able to pay for tickets to the Giza pyramids in Russian rubles, announced the head of the Parliament’s Tourism Committee, Nora Ali.
“This issue is already under study and measures will be taken to implement it in the near future,” Ali added.
At the moment, entry to the Giza pyramids area for Egyptians costs LE60 (US$2.5), and for foreigners LE240 (about $10). It can be paid in cash or by credit card. An additional amount should be paid to enter each pyramid from the inside.
