Algiers
Overlooking a scenic bay, the Mediterranean port city of Algiers enthralls visitors with its imposing skyline, a blend of French colonial buildings, run-down high-rises, and whitewashed Islamic architecture nestled on the hillside.
Change things up with these side-trips from Algiers: Blida (Mausolee Sidi Yakoub, Mausolee de Sidi Elkebir, &more). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Le Jardin d'Essai du Hamma, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilique Notre Dame d'Afrique, wander the streets of Kasbah of Algiers, and see the interesting displays at Musee National du Bardo.

To plan Algiers vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
