Behind a newly restored and reopened Pyramid of Unas is waiting for visitors. It was here where the 1st «pyramids texts» were found. Optionally you can enter inside the pyramid (requires extra ticket).

Next stop at Pyramid of Teti, which you can enter and explore and then tombs of nobles near the pyramids where we can also enter and admire some wall paintings and funerary art of ancient Egyptians.
