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.

  • Just love it. Best place to bring your children. Lovely place. A lot of people come here to play, to arrange picnic, for wedding photoshoot. The children can do a lot. You can play football. The lighthouse is there. The beach is one of the best beaches in Alexandria. I just love this place. I recommend this for all types of people of all ages. But you need to bring your own food to eat. You can spend the whole day there. So you have to take food and drink. Only 25£E for the entrance.
  • Relaxing walk in a well kept landscaping of grass flowers and palm trees. .the sea is at your site. The palace is beautiful from outside and hold a history inside.
