Well maintained scenic Corniche just begs for a romantic stroll as far as your legs will carry you. Then stop for a coffee or dinner to admire the beauty of the view.

I live in Cairo, Had gone to visit Alexandria last week. It was a Friday hence the driving experience on Corniche was great. There was no traffic, the climate was amazing and it was good over all. This is the only Main road in Alexandria, so on normal working days you may experience high traffic.

Pretty much like any other city with a corniche , The corniche in Alexandria is quite similar . Plenty of places to eat , plenty of places to sit back enjoy the breeze and watch the sunset while you are sipping Egyptian tea or smoking a Hooka ( shisha) .

Very high traffic due to congestions made at Stanley area. Try to skip corniche road. Also if u can park ur car in hotel and make ur trips walking or via electronic transportation methods would be better.

Corniche,Alexandria: It is Alexandria’s long curved & wide waterfront road along the Medeterranean. It is icon of the city. It’s here that you get a real feel of the era of cosmopolitan elegance & decadence that marked the city in the late 19th & early 20th centuries. You will find architecture from this era, still standing along the Corniche. A... More
