Il Corso is a new iconic landmark in Cebu few meters away from SM Seaside. IL Corso is a redefined lifestyle destination for conventional shopping and specialty dining with the panoramic view of the sea and open spaces. As the sun about to set on the west, a cool stroll during the afternoon will provide shade from the heat and take fresh breath as you explore around. It’s relaxing just to see the landscape and the scenery. This article will focus the stunning view by the bay at the back of Il Corso and what else to find there.
Welcome to Il Corso
At the front where you’re going to park or just at the drop point, Il Corso welcomes you with there emblem. It’s on a decorated wall with nicely landscape facade.
Usually, this is our entry point. Though there are many other way points but this place is our favorite. It leads directly to the back where a little walk way and the pool is located, along with the ocean view. It is relaxing here with breeze of fresh air. Take a walk or even jog along the road further nearer the ocean.
CCLEX Vantage Point
CCLEX or the Cebu–Cordova Link Expressway is visible from here. The vantage view of the 8.9 kilometer bridge connecting Cebu and Cordova can be viewed with the naked eyes. It is actually few meters though from IL Corso going to SM seaside where the entrance (and exit) of CCLEX is located.
Restaurants and Food Galleries and Toy Stalls
IL Corso is another home of big name restaurants like Parilya and Chika-an are some of the highlights. Dessert Factory and some coffee and tea shops are around too. Dinning in or outside (by the bay) options for the mall goers are a great experience too. Aside from foods, outside are varied stalls offering toys for children and other finds. There is also our favorite PetLane little extension store!
