Founded by Alexander the Great, once the seat of Queen Cleopatra, Alexandria is the stuff legends are made of. It has seen different periods of history during the centuries and is still a „champion survivor“. Today the modern library of Alexandria located at the grand seafront Corniche and is a symbol of the city's latest revival as Egypt’s cultural capital.

For many visitors, Alexandria remains a city of ambience rather than sights. This is the ideal place to spend time sipping coffee in old-world cafes and meandering the Harbour area, admiring belle époque architecture and feeling the ghosts of the past.

Rosetta or Rashid is a port city of the Nile Delta, 65 km (40 mi) east of Alexandria, in Egypt's Beheira governorate. The Rosetta Stone was discovered there in 1799.

Founded around the 9th century, Rosetta boomed with the decline of Alexandria following the Ottoman conquest of Egypt in 1517, only to wane in importance after Alexandria's revival. During the 19th century, it was a popular British tourist destination, known for its charming Ottoman mansions, citrus groves, and relative cleanliness.
