Mediterranean sunset in Alexandria is, oh boy, breathtaking. While I was in Alexandria last month, a local couchsurfer (Thanks, Abdulazziz!) brought me to Montaza Palace Gardens. This park is huge and there were only few people when we were there. Its lush green, well-manicured gardens are good for an afternoon walk or picnic. This is a great place to escape from the crazy, busy streets of Alexandria. When the weather gets too hot, this is your cool refuge.
The best place to watch the sunset here is by going to the red, Victorian-styled bridge. The setting sun is right in front of you and it makes a perfect backdrop for the old light house.
How to get to Montaza Palace Gardens
If you’re along the corniche, just flag down a mini bus and shout, “Montaza!” The driver certainly knows where you’re gonna be dropped off.
