We traveled with our teens to see this as part of our day tour of pyramids and we loved walking through the telllenamd up to the stepped pyramid. Definitely worth a stop.

This unusual pyramid is set away from the other pyramids in Giza. It has an interesting history and there are some stunning colourful tombs to visit while you are there. You can also go inside the red pyramid. Well worth visiting if you have the...More

The step pyramid is notable as being the earliest of them all, built under the direction of Imhotep. A hall of columns, the Imhotep Museum and several tombs are on the same site

This is the oldest monumental stone structure on earth and the first pyramid. The remains of other pyramids and temples nearby and views of the Giza pyramids in one direction, and of the Dahshur pyramids in the other.
