Algiers, Algeria

Algiers (Al-Jazaïr) is a very impressive city of rare beauty and of thrilling contrasts. Its turbulent history is writ large in the city's wide French-built boulevards and elegant villas, Socialist-era monuments and public buildings compliment an enduring Islamic heart, particularly in the steep, hillside Casbah. Labyrinthine streets spill down to the Bay of Algiers, sea, sky and green ravines blending into beauty at every step. Algiers is well worth at least a couple of weeks of exploration.
