Corniche

Recommended
A stroll along the Corniche, fromQaitbay Fort to thenew library , gives a real insight into the Mediterranean character of a city looking to the West. It will also give you a taste of the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the 1930s to the 1950s, for example atHotel Cecil , immortalised by Lawrence Durrell inThe Alexandria Quartet . The seafront with its hotels, cafés and restaurants is frequented by locals too, especially at sunset, and the sandy beaches are very popular in summer.
