Not as big as the other two, you could miss this one if you don't have enough time, but if you do just take a quick walk around, as the craftsmanship is still truly breathtaking.

As the smallest of the three pyramids, I could have said "Last" but not least, but almost two centuries ago, a ship destined for England, that was carrying what was the most beautiful of the three sarcophagi, decorated with a motif of a palace façade, sank to the bottom of the sea off the coast of Spain, forever "lost".

The third and smallest of the Pyramids of Giza in the vast esplanade area. Like exactly the other two it is possible to visit the inside, the only drawback is each of these has an additional cost and in this case the Mikerinos pyramid is about 40 Egyptian pounds I think more or less € 5. Unfortunately I could not... More

Do no go and waste your money, the worst people in Egypt , they love to lie , steal from any body, charge you more because you do not speak the language, it is fealty, expensive , crowded, and not safe.

Kind of interesting...Not a lot to see but as with the others it always amazes me how they built these things. You can go inside and as always if you enjoying snooping around in dark awesome ancient places - its worth it. I love doing stuff like that myself :)

Most likely you will see the big pyramid first and the smallest one last. It looks deceptively small but always have in mind the neighbourhood. In fact it is another very ancient and very tall building just build to so that one very powerful man will have a safe journey into eternity. You can enter and I would rather enter... More

This is one of the main attractions of the Pharaohs culture. The pyramids, of course. I think it's a standard attraction spot on any tourist's itinerary. And I think it is really, really worth the effort. Satisfaction guaranteed on this one.
