One hasn't seen Alexandria until you have visited the Corniche area. Must history here and building which have their roots in a variety of nationalities are in various states of repair. There are some beach areas but quite a lot is rocky shore.

Expectations were high but in reality the Corniche buildings are either being replaced with uninspiring new structures, crumbling or just poorly maintained. The beaches are very crowded with some privately owned. The Stanley bridge is lovely but almost impossible to stop and view at length....More
