Due to it's location connecting Alexandria's main touristic spots, San Stefano Grand Plaza Mall is probably the nearest, easiest, fanciest and fastest way to enjoy shopping and cruising. You can shop brand names stores, catch a movie, have a bite or enjoy a cup of coffee indoors with the variety of restaurants and cafes or outdoors in Starbucks with the splendid view of the Mediterranean Sea. You'll find different kinds of stores that provide you with all your personal needs (clothes, accessories, books, perfumes and makeup,) and home needs (Metro store for supplies, furnishing and home essentials, appliances). All under one roof and with great quality. A little overpriced, but sure saves time and effort.
After all that, go for a walk along the beach 5 minutes from the mall! Enjoy Alexandria's Charm!
