Great pyramid to go inside

You should go inside this pyramid if you don´t want to crawl the very long and narrow way to se the inside of the Cheops Pyramid. It is also much cheaper.

Even the smallest of the Giza pyramids is still a wonder to see. Room around and take in the grandeur!

smallest of all pyramids, no real reason to vsit the pyramids as you can not go inside in any case,also once you have visited the khufu pyrmid somehow all others are not worth visiting due to the grandness of khufu pyramid. but well since you are here and have paid for this also do visit, this is the one which...

No words to descibe and so accessible. It can be seen from all over Cairo. One of those Bucket List Items everyone should take care of.

Smallest of the three pyramids of Giza, but no less stunning. There are fewer tourists and you can find yourself wandering around on your own.

Honestly, this was our favorite of the three main pyramids at Giza. It is a bit away from the other two and the Sphinx, and this keeps the crowds down, There's a gash in the side from where Saladin's successor tried to demolish and failed. If you want to go inside, you have to buy the additional tickets at the... More

Yes it is the smallest of the trio of Giza and has been damaged but still as impressive as the rest. We didn't go inside that one but has been told that it is similar to the rest. A bit further from the other two but you can stop here if you have the horse/carriage/car/camel or by foot.

The smallest of the 3 main pyramids at Giza, the Mikerinos Pyramid is still just as beautiful. A bit of a walk away from the main action, it is worth a quick stop on the way to the Panorama Viewpoint.

The Mikerinos or pyramid of Menkaure is much easier to access than the Khufu or Cheops pyramid. The access is stairs with a handrail. Yes, you do have to bend over while going up and down the stairs, but with the handrails, it is not that difficult. You get to stand up in an antechamber, and again when you reach... More

We visited in April. It is the newest and smallest of the three pyramids of Gizah. It is less visited that the other 2. When we visited Mikerinos (Menkaure), surprisingly, there were no other visitors and we were not bothered by anybody. You can detail the different colours at the base (granite) and the upper parts of the pyramid. It... More
