Welcome to Rosetta


Today its backwater appeal strikes a contrast with the modern hustle of nearby Alexandria. The citrus groves have mostly disappeared, but some restored mansions are open to visitors. The unpaved streets are packed with donkeys pulling overloaded carts, and the souq area has an atmosphere of centuries past, with basket-weavers artfully working fronds and blacksmiths hammering away in medieval-looking shopfronts.
