    Montaza Palace and Paradise Inn.

    Montaza palace is always known a private area in Alexandria.
    maybe for lovers as it is one of the most areas with trees and something like that which make you feel free and satisfied from what you see.

    also if you want to go to the beach and you wearing Bikini this is your only way,Paradise Inn beach is the only way to swim with Bikini.

    Montaza Palace is higher price than everywhere else,but I am sure that you will enjoy the time there.

    This is a lovely place to spend a few hours, especially in summer when the flowers are in bloom, but it is still nice in winter.
    You can walk or drive around. There are places where you can find refreshment, or stand and watch the ocean crashing onto the rocks,
    The palace itself is like a Disney castle The architecture has a strong Italian influence on it.

    The royal gardens of king Faruk, the last king of Egypt. Today it's a beautiful and very big park full of palm trees, pines, lovely flowers and exclusive hotels, with a lovely beach and luxurious tourist facilities. A very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. BEAUTIFUL!
    This is the entrance to the gardens.

    Gardens and Palace of the king

    At the east side of the Cornich you can visit the gardens of former King Farouk. You have to pay some small admission fee to go there, but can take your own car in the large gardens.
    The former palaces have another destination nowadays (casino, museum and hotel)
    There is a beach, a nice walking bridge, views at the waterfront. It's a nice place, if you like a relaxed day not far from the city.

    Another Palace!

    Muntazah was formerly the summer residence of the Egyptian royal family.

    After the monarchy was overthrown in 1952, the palace buildings, known as Haramlek and Salamlek, were put to other uses. The Haramlek contains a casino on the ground floor and a museum of royal relics on the upper levels. The Salamlek has been converted into a hotel.
