Alexandria may no longer influence the rest of the world as it did during the Ptolemaic Dynasty, and very few vestiges remain from ancient times, but it is nonetheless a charming city straddling East and West that invites you to lose yourself in its streets. It is also a seaside resort that is popular with Cairo residents. Be sure to walk along the famous Corniche, where the cosmopolitan atmosphere that characterised the city in the 1930s-1950s can still be felt.
