Attractions

Places of interest in Morocco include:

  • Marrakesh is the place to go to immerse yourself in Morocco’s spectacular markets. Jump into one of the dizzying labyrinths of covered streets and experience its overwhelming sights and sounds. Save plenty of time for Djemaa el-Fna, the heart of the market, as well as for the ornate palaces and museums.

  • Meknès is Morocco’s third imperial city. It’s a tranquil place to experience meandering medina streets and impressive buildings such as an 11th century mosque, majestic gates, palaces, as well as zoological gardens and a former subterranean prison.

  • Fès is the oldest imperial city and is appropriately rich in culture, spirituality, and history. It’s even the site of the world’s first university. Venture into Old Fès and you’re sure to lose a day simply wandering the twisting alleys stuffed full of mosques, shops, and restaurants.

  • Tangier is the place to experience the new Morocco—it’s a modern, cosmopolitan city with an active nightlife. Enjoy the squares and modern shopping centres and relax in one of Tangier’s famous cafés.
