Rosetta Day Tour from Alexandria Port

Save
Share
Overview
What to Expect
your  Tours guide and manager will be waiting inside the Alexandria Port for you. They will be holding a sign showing your name. You do not need to look for them – they will be waiting for you and will find you.

From the moment your tour starts, your guides will give you full attention. Once in the car, your guide will talk to you about all the things on the way as well as other aspects of your tour that will interest you.

Travel to Rosetta It is 60 kilometer from Alexandria to experience the simple life of Rosetta. You will take a traditional motor boat in the River Nile to visit the famous island of Abu Mandor with its famous mosque and mythological stories, then you will drive to the meeting point of the Nile and the Mediterranean its amazing point where the river Nile meets the Mediterranean sea as well as the castle of kaitbet where the famous 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. Travel in comfort back to your cruise ship.

Rosetta has so much to see, feel, eat and buy so if you have time and want to add more to your itinerary – just let us know what you are interested in and we will arrange it for you at the cost price – no profit to us.

Your tour in Rosetta, , has been designed to help you enjoy the maximum amount of Egypt with the least amount of time.

If you want to customize your trip, please let us know.
