Son of Cheops, large pyramid in Giza. This area is known to have thousands of burials. A few steps but mainly flat walking on uneven ground.

This is off the beaten path but so worth the visit. It's history, beauty and being part of something amazing. Certainly a worthwhile stop.

Very interesting contrast to the construction of the great pyramid of Giza. It's was under renovation and we could not get really close to, or enter, the pyramid but it's still well-worth the visit. This is the only pyramid we visited where the surrounding wall...More

Far less tourists than expected, inside the tombs is worth the visit and if you take a photo of the camels "parked" outside be prepared to pay! you have to pay for absolutely everything, even for asking for the nearest loo.

The pyramid itself is not as impressive (after having visited a bunch of other ones) as is the gallery leading to it. Take some time to marvel at the ancient columns and the ingenious massive stone doors that could be closed in the past. Next...More

This is the pyramid in Saqqara (several sites are listed under similar names, that are all the same site). This is definitely worth the visit with its history, and the beautiful decorations and carvings in the nearby tombs--plus don't miss the museum in Memphis.

Not as good as the original Pyramids but hummm I wonder where they got the stones to build this one.
