Meet a driver at your hotel, then make the hour-long trip to Rosetta in a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. Upon arrival in the city, make the first stop of the day at the Rashid Museum, where you’ll find fascinating exhibits and a replica of the Rosetta Stone, whose hieroglyphic, Demotic, and Ancient Greek inscriptions unlocked the secrets of ancient Egyptian writing. 

Following your time at the museum, stretch your legs on a walking tour of the town’s winding streets and colorful markets, where locals sell fresh produce, fish, and breads. As you walk, you’ll find a series of beautifully-preserved Ottoman homes with distinctive style and architecture, including the House of Amasyali and the Mill of Abu Shaheen.

See the unique design of Rosetta’s “Hanging Mosque,” then make a final stop at the Citadel of Qaitbay, a 15th-century fortification built at the edge of the Nile River. Climb to the top of the citadel walls, which stand on the site of the former Lighthouse of Alexandria, a Wonder of the Ancient World that was destroyed in the 14th century. This 7-hour Rosetta tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
