Seems like a love hate relationship. This historical site is probably hated for what it once stood for, but now loved for it's beauty and grandeur. Can't go beyond the gates, but the grounds and the building are magnificient. One of the many interesting features of Alexandria.

This place i adore so much, it is one of the most important attractions in Alexandria, one must visit. this place is historical, elegant, has a nice beach, hurge historical gardens,5 stars restaurants.hotels, so this place got it all
it shows a part of the living history of Egypt.The King Farouk Palace was the summer home for the king; who was looked upon as the most controversial king of Egypt.
The palace is spread over a huge sprawling property located near the sea shore. The architectural design is mesmerizing and very intriguing. It was built by Italian Venice style. If you wanted to stay beside it i recommend Palestine hotel in Muntazah.

What a lovely spot to enjoy a lush garden with scenic views--no question why the former sultans picked this location. Our guide Ahmed from Ramses gave us all the history which enriched our visit.

You can only view this from outside as you are not allowed to go in. you can click pictures from outside. luckily it was near to our hotel so didnt feel bad but otherwise waste of time
