North Menkaure Pyramid Chamber Entrance, Giza, Near Cairo, Egypt.
SouthWest Side Menkaure Pyramid, Giza, Near Cairo, Egypt.

The Pyramid Of Menkaure is the smaller of the three.

It is beautifully constructed and distinguished by its red granite lower courses and well preserved underground chambers.

A stone sarcophagus was found in the pyramid and sent to England by ship. It was lost off of the coast of Spain when the ship and its cargo went down in the 19th century.

Tradition says that the Menkaure pyramid was built by the last 6th Dynasty queen Nitocris. It is beleived that the pyramid is haunted by a beautiful naked woman ghost who is trying to lure the innocent men who visit the pyramid. Perhaps it is queen Nitocris herself! George Looked all over the pyramid for queen Nitocris, but alas, she did not appear!

The Cairo International Airport (IATA: CAI, ICAO: HECA) is the busiest airport in Egypt and is located to the north-east of the city around 15 km from the business area of the city.

Cairo International is the second busiest airport in Africa with over 65 airlines using the Cairo airport (including charter airlines) and 9 cargo airlines. With the assimilation of EgyptAir into Star Alliance in July 2008 the airport has the potential to be a major hub with its positioning between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. In 2008, the airport served 14,360,175 passengers and it is one of the top 100 airports in the world.

The airport handles both domestic and international flights, and is open 24 hours a day.

We suggest flying into Cairo and staying in one of their many fine hotels when touring the Egyptian Musium in Cairo and the ruins in the surrounding areas.

We have links on this page that will connect you with flights into Cairo and several of the best hotels in Cairo.

After getting a flight and a hotel we suggest asking your hotel concierge to arrange either a car or a tour of Cairo or the Cairo area. If you call their Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Egypt. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem, doing it this way!

Therefore, we have placed links to Expedia.com on this page so you can arrange your flights into and out of Cairo; as well as your hotel, when visiting this area.
