Corniche

Downtown Alexandria’s wide waterfront road is as much a symbol of the city as any of its monuments. It’s here that you get a real feel for the era of cosmopolitan elegance and decadence that marked this city in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Much of the architecture from this era still stands along the Corniche, though these days, much of it is heavily dilapidated and falling into disrepair. 

During your stroll check out the colonial remnants of the Steigenberger Cecil Hotel and Paradise Inn Windsor Palace Hotel, which are still the key harbor-side addresses for visitors who want to wallow in bygone-days ambience. The Cecil played host to Winston Churchill and the British Secret Service during WWII, and both hotels have endeavored to restore and keep much of their original Edwardian charm
