Montaza Complex Montaza Complex

The Montaza palace was built in 1892 by Abbas II, the then ruler of Egypt, as a royal residence. King Fuad made some additions and his son King Farouk built the bridge that extends in the water.

The complex includes two hotels: Palestine and Salamlek (San Giovanni). In addition to enjoying the greenery, there are fine beaches, whether in the hotels or the public ones, though you must pay for the latter. The main beaches are Aida and Venesia (Venice). There are bungalows available for rent.

The rest of the complex is nothing but lavish gardens ideal for picnics. The whole area is about 384 acres (1.5 km2). The place is really Alexandria's best place for relaxation.
