The Corniche is a beautiful place to walk or drive to get to lots of locations in Alex, but beware—it’s also a high traffic area. It takes a long time to get anywhere, so don’t get in too much of a hurry. Also, drivers are...More

Best place in Alexandria where you can do a lot of activities for free. You can see sunset, making sport, sitting with friends, or simply enjoying fresh air.

Good place to take a long walk with your wife, to run or to walk your dog. Especially, at this time of the year. It gets very very crowded in the summer. I wouldn't recommend it on the summer time from June to August.
