A trip to Morocco is a timeless adventure that immediately recalls bright colors – those of spices, gardens, markets, buildings, the sea, the mountains and the desert – and great contrasts. Whether for a romantic getaway with the most special person for you, a bike itinerary, or to let your children experience the excitement of exploring the Sahara desert on the back of a camel, a tour of Morocco will be the journey of your lifetime.
Regardless of your starting point, deciding what to visit in Morocco will be a challenge: from the Sahara desert to the Atlas, going through impressive gorges and luxurious oases, to the biggest cities, ending up in small villages, this country will always be able to leave you breathless. Here are some ideas to start planning what to see during your holidays in Morocco.
A must-visit destination of your trip will surely be Marrakech, the “Red City”: the high and low medina with the Koutoubia mosque on one side, and the gardens and markets on the other side. This lively metropolis will conquer you as nothing else in the world could do. Fès, the so called “Queen of Maghreb” and cultural capital of Morocco, will enchant you with its medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The spectacular Hassan II Mosque, the world third largest one, is located in Casablanca, the economic capital. Chefchaouen, the blue pearl, is a real gem which has been kept away from the passage of any foreigner for a long time for being considered a sacred city. You will not be able to do without stopping to take pictures, especially in the old city. In the coastal city of Essaouria let yourself be fascinated by the blue sea, the white beaches, the breeze of the ocean and the beauty of the city.
