“I know were disney got his inspiration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

The Palace is in the grounds of montazzah park so is situated in a very peaceful area though there are restaurants and the beach close by. You cannot go in to the building to look around so basically its just a case of looking at it and thinking Wow how beautiful.

“Not worth the time to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Long drive for a building behind a gate. You should spend your time elsewhere like in the Catacombs or the Library museums.

“Beautiful to look at, but forbidden to enter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

King farouq palace is situated in the garden of montaza. It is just a palace where we can see outside the gate. Cant even enter the palace compound. So lets say.. 5 minutes here is enough to take picture. After that, head to the seaside. There u can find a more beautiful scenery, a bridge even.

“Historic area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

it is a big area with lots of gardens, 2 hotels, nice sea view, you are not allowed in the palace as it is still used by the president, you can walk around, or have a drink in any of the hotels
