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. The crown jewel in the glimmering cityscape, the walled Kasbah reveals a labyrinth of narrow, sloping lanes flanked with old houses and mosques. As Algeria's capital and largest city, Algiers boasts modern amenities, quality restaurants, beaches, and a sweeping seaside promenade. On an Algiers vacation, you can delve into the country's rich history on a tour of the city's museums and notable buildings, or take scenic coastal drives and explore nearby beaches. Our Algeria online road trip planner allows you to plan your trip to Algiers and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
