Montazah Palace and Gardens Apr 04, 2010
A very nice walk after the noisy center downtown .

The Montazah Palace Gardens about 370 different flowers in the gardens and woods. Also inside is the King Farouk Palace .

It was built east of Alexandria on a high hill and overlooking the most beautiful beach of Alexandria .

The Montazah Palace Though the gardens are a part of the more than three hundred and fifty acre grounds of the large royal home known as the Muntazah Palace, the Montazah Royal Gardens take up more than half of the property.

The palace was constructed in the 1800s by Abbas II, and though additions have been made to the impressive structure (including two hotels) the majority of the area is free to use by the people of the city.

Some pictures to have a look !

Wow Giannis, you made me so interested about Egypt, honestly it was low on my wish travel list as I think it is too "touristy" but I think Alexandria is worth the visit. Thanks!!
