Outlined Itinerary

Over day to Rosetta

Alexandria tour to Rosetta is simply an incredible trip to the country side of Egypt and also a chance to see houses and building from the 18th century. Rosetta is the famous site where the Rosetta Stone was found by French soldiers in 1799. Rosetta lies 65 km Northeast of Alexandria. This town had been an extremely important military site since early times. The town has witnessed many important events in ancient as well as modern times. Oriental Tours Egypt offers you more info about: Rosetta (the modern representative of the ancient Bolbitine) which has a great number of Islamic monuments; will never be found in any other city but Cairo. You will have the chance to visit Abu Mandour Hills and Rosetta Castle.

If you fancy visiting part of the country life in Egypt, do not hesitate to visit Rosetta where life is still simple and primitive. It is 60 kilometer from Alexandria. You will get to take a motor boat in the Nile and visit an island, the meeting point of the Nile and the Mediterranean as well as the castle where Rosetta stone was found. In 1799, the famous “Rosetta Stone” was discovered here – a granite stele with texts incised in three languages, which made a major contribution to deciphering the hieroglyphs. Rosetta is considered as a large open-air museum for Islamic architecture. The great number of Islamic monuments found here does not exist in any other city, except for Cairo. Unfortunately most of these unique monuments are neglected, modern buildings surround them, and the unplanned urbanization also affects them badly, causing much damage. Therefore it is necessary for a great national effort to be made to save them, in order to revive the historical character of the city.
