Morocco, known as a "gateway to Africa," is a fascinating destination for travelers seeking something a little different.
Morocco’s cultural offerings are varied and plenty. The country’s many medinas, or ancient walled cities, are an electric microcosm of bazaars, courtyards, mosques, and more; a visit to one offers insight into the ancient craft of carpet making, Moroccan baking, and pottery. Deep in the Todra Gorge, the ‘Grand Canyon of the Sahara,’ local nomads welcome visitors with a cup of traditional Berber tea. But nothing compares to the unique culture of Marrakesh, the 'Red City,' comprised of an old fortified city and an adjacent modern city. While in Marrakesh, make sure to visit the country's largest traditional market ('souk') and learn the art of haggling, then visit the ornate Bahia Palace and Djemaa el Fna Square where dancers, snake charmers, and storytellers take part in the one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
Tours of Morocco stop in the capital city of Rabat where you will view the 17th-century palace and Mausoleum of Mohammed V. In Fez, see the royal palace, shop for beautiful carpets, and visit the dye pits and tanneries for an insight into Morocco's ancient leather craft. Travel between the Middle and High Atlas mountain ranges en route to Erfoud, the Gateway to the Sahara, and a popular location for filmmakers. While there, visit the port town of Essaouira and tour the walled Jewish Quarter and Skala fortress. Admire the French and Moroccan architecture in Casablanca and enjoy views of the incredible Hassan II Mosque, or Grande Mosquée Hassan II, built for the late King Mohammed V by King Hassan II.
