Montazah Gardens, Alexandria

4.3
Once a royal retreat, Montazah Gardens are now a landscaped public park and forest reserve. The two summer palaces on the grounds display contrasting architectural styles, one influenced by the Moorish traditions, the other with a distinctly Florentine and Turkish look to it. The parkland around the structures features wilder, open spaces of greenery, as well as artfully arranged garden areas. A small cove offers a secluded strip of sand by the sea, with extensive views along the Mediterranean coast.

  • Really liked the place! Took some foreigner friends there and it was a good experience for all. You can find some really nice restaurants there, with a variety of choices (seafood is the best tho, can't argue that). Many activities as well to try, we took a speed boat for 30 mins and it was pretty exciting moment. I highly recommend it if you wanna spend a nice Friday afternoon.
  • Very nice landscaped place. The palace looks nice from the outside. The sea looked inviting. However the beach was closed to the public so we had to just view from a distance. Would have been nicer if we could have got to the beach.
