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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Grotte de Cervantes, Memorial du Martyr and Kasbah of Algiers. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ketchaoua Mosque and Jamaa El Jedid. Jamaa El Kebir and Villa Abd-el-Tif are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Algiers: Tikjda National Park (in Bouira) and Ancienne Synagogue de Blida (in Blida). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Musee Public National de l'Enluminure, de la Miniature et de la Calligraphie, explore the world behind art at National Museum of Fine Arts of Algiers, and stroll the grounds of Mausolee Sidi Abderrahmane.
