Rosetta is a port city of the Nile Delta, located east of Alexandria, in Egypt's Beheira governorate.

Founded around in the 9th century, Rashid 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 comparative cleanliness.
