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.

This was the 2nd trip organised with Egyptian Excursions Online, again with our guide Ahmed Elleter. We were picked up promptly at 6:30am and whisked off on our 3-hour drive to Alexandria, during which we stopped for coffee on the way. Ahmed again demonstrated his great knowledge throughout the excursion, starting at the Catacombs, which were great to see after... More
