King Farouk Palace, Alexandria

Located amidst the trimmed grass and numerous flowerbeds, King Farouk Palace stands as a witness to the once-glorious life of the penultimate Egyptian king. Today it serves as a guest palace for foreign diplomats, and thus off-limits to visitors; nevertheless, you can observe its grandeur from the lush surrounding garden, enjoying the gentle breeze of the very close Mediterranean Sea. Admire the lavish design of the late 19th-century complex, built in a combination of Florentine and Turkish architectural style, with richly carved Renaissance decorations on the facade.
