A land of deserts and mountains, infused with the deep-rooted traditions of the Arabs and the Berbers, Morocco is one of North Africa’s most engaging destinations. Home to some of the finest reminders of Africa’s imperial age, its cities and kasbahs provide the dazzling backdrop to this comprehensive journey of discovery.
After taking in the sites of Casablanca and Rabat, you’ll head for the Roman ruins of Volublis and the old imperial city of Meknes, the historic capital of Moulay Ismail. The journey then continues towards Fez, one of the oldest and most complete medieval cities in the world, where you’ll have time to wander its winding streets before heading out along the “Road of a Thousand Kasbahs” and into the dunes and oases of the Sahara.
Next is Marrakech and its labyrinthine medina, which offers up a setting straight from the pages of the Arabian Nights. Here you’ll have some time to enjoy the unique delights of its famous Djemma El Fna, before turning west towards the Atlantic coast and the charming fortified town of Essaouira.
