I went with my 13 years old daughter on a Saturday to visit the different Palaces inside the Montazah. Young generations do need to feel that Egypt had a history way beyond all human kinds. The Montazah isn`t that old, but it symbolizes an era of the Royal Family gave themselves the right to choose the best places in Egypt... More

My family are regular visitors to Montazah Gardens. The cost of entry per person is currently 15 Egyptian Pounds. There is no entrance to the Palace within the gardens, it is merely a place to walk, picnic, have fun with kids, play, sit and watch the sea or eat in one of the many restaurants within. There are several areas... More

We just moved in this garden by car. As there was nothing much in it. The palace was not allowed for the visitor during that period I suppose

Montazah Palace: This Palace is situated along the coast about 20 km east of Alexandria’s old district. Once it was the royal summer residence of King Farouk. The eccentrically designed Palace with it’s Ornate Florentine inspired towers & Rococo style, probably, emphasizes King’s dreams of Venetian grandeur. The magnificent Palace is certainly a highlight of Alexandria. There is a good... More

We were not able to visit the inside of the palace, but it was nice to see the grounds Beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea. A great place to stroll and imagine how life was a hundred years ago.

I was taken to visit the Montazah Palace Garden on Monday 2nd January by friends who live in Alexandria. It is a lovely calm oasis away from the hustle and traffic of Alex. With many different areas it provides somewhere to walk, picnic, play, relax. You can feel as though you are in woodland or at the seaside. A lovely... More
