The sea view is really amazing espicially during winter time. The air and breeze that you will only feel in this place. But, a lot of spots of Courniche had been covered by ugly buildings, cafes and clubs. Also, the platform of Raml station and Manshyia needs to be changed as it had been totally damaged. There is a very... More

After the desert and pyramids and the traffic craze of Cairo you enter the port city of Alexandria and the blue of the Mediterranean Sea stretches before you. Unexpected and beautiful.

I've been to many countries on the Mediterranean, non of them as beautiful as Alexandria's corniche. My favorite season is winter when you walk. Have a hot halebessa and yummy grilled corn.

The corniche is a waterfront promenade running along the Eastern Harbour of the miditerranean Sea. The main and most crowded road in Alexandria runs along the corniche, most of the hotels are located in both sides of the road. Besides hotels, many local cafes are there at which you can drink the ideal Egyptian tea and other hot drinks.
