FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Caius Cestius visited Egypt and liked the idea of pyramids so much he decided to build his own, as a tomb.
  • The pyramid, constructed in 12 BC, is approximately 120 feet high, and the only remaining pyramid built in Roman times.
  • You can't go inside, so this is quick sightseeing, but it's an impressive structure and a great photo op.
