Renowned French author and expert journalist on Middle East Affairs, Roland Lombardi, toured the Giza Plateau.
He visited both the great pyramid of Khufu and the Sphinx, and enjoyed his lunch before the pyramids at one of the plateau’s restaurants.
The tour came on the fringe of his recent visit to Egypt to attend a seminar at the 54th Cairo International Book Fair on his newly published book entitled “Abdel Fattah El-Sisi: The Egyptian Bonaparte.”
Lombardi expressed his admiration for the magnificence of the pyramids and for the prowess demonstrated by the ancient Egyptians in carving the Sphinx.
He was also keen to document his visit to the Plateau by taking photos.
Lombardi explains in the introduction to his book that it is is not a biography, but rather a profile of a leader whose ambitions for Egypt are similar to those of Napoleon Bonaparte for France after the French Revolution.
