Let Us Plan Your Travel to Morocco
The Kingdom of Morocco lies in the northwest corner of Africa, an area known as the “Arab West,” less than 10 miles from Spain, yet a world apart from Europe. Slightly larger than the state of California, it features a spectacular coastline with beautiful beaches along both the Mediterranean and Atlantic and is filled with sandy deserts, rugged mountains, lively souks and Berber culture. The rich kaleidoscope of cultures is a result of its control by the Berbers, Arabs, the French and Spanish conquistadors, as well being home to Jews for centuries.
Travelers can discover everything from medieval fortresses, opulent palaces and magnificent mosques to surfing towns, and bustling cities where winding streets and squares are filled with fortune tellers, monkey handlers and snake charmers. The rugged Atlas Mountains are home to unique villages that offer a glimpse at traditional rural life along with scenic beauty.
Some of the most popular cities for tourists to explore in Morocco include Fes, Marrakech, Essaouira and the famous ‘blue city’ of Chefchaouen, with its Santorini feel minus the water, tucked among the hills. Throughout are dazzling colors, enticing aromas, gorgeous gardens, historic sites, romantic riads, and a wide range of mouthwatering eats from tagine to kebabs.
Shopping opportunities abound in the bustling souks with their antiques, traditional clothing, handicrafts, spices and more. Just a few of the outdoor adventures available include mountain hikes, biking, 4X4 excursions through the desert, camel rides, canyoning, rock climbing, horseback riding, fishing, surfing and even sandboarding down massive dunes.

Where to visit in Morocco
Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Morocco.
Casablanca may forever be associated with the romantic 1945 film starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, and it is home to Rick’s Café, a restaurant that recreated the eponymous spot from the movie, but today it serves as the industrial, economic and cosmopolitan heart of Morocco. It’s well worth visiting just for the buzzing nightlife and the awe-inspiring Hassan II Mosque, the nation’s biggest and most impressive with ornate details that took 100,000 artisan craftsmen seven years to build. Set on a platform extending over the Atlantic, it features vibrant tiles and mosaics that tie into traditional Islamic architecture.
The so-called “Blue City” is famous for its tranquil atmosphere that has the feel of Santorini minus the water with cubist structures, tucked among the hillsides, winding cobbled streets, alleyways, and steep stairs that are all in blue. It might be more accurately referred to as the “50 Shades of Blue City” with hues ranging from powder and robin’s egg blue to indigo, cobalt and periwinkle. It’s managed to remain mostly unchanged since the Middle Ages, with visitors shopping for unique handicrafts and local produce in the medina’s bustling markets while mint tea is sipped in side street cafes.
This seaside city along the Atlantic is famous for its surfing and has an interesting dual heritage as a former Portuguese fortress with a blend of European and Moroccan traditions and architecture that can be seen throughout. Despite the European influence, it’s a typical Moroccan town with palm trees next to white homes, Gnaoua singing and women wearing white haiks. There are beachfront cafés for dining on fresh seafood while gazing out at colorful fishing boats that bob on the water, and stunning sandy beaches edged by the vibrant blue Atlantic that call for peaceful strolls.
The cultural center of Morocco, Fes is the Arab world’s most complete medieval city, a unique and magical mix of Middle Ages meets modern world. An imperial city established more than a thousand years ago, the oldest part is surrounded by hall walls, with the twists and turns of the ancient streets in the medina fun just to get lost in, dining on street foods like pastilla along the way. Known for its leather products which can be found at the leather bazaar, be sure to visit the pungent, colorful tanneries, to witness the time-honored practice.
High Atlas Mountains
This mountain range in central Morocco is the highest part of the Atlas Mountains which separate the Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines from the Sahara Desert. They’re home to networks of scenic hiking trails and dirt roads that snake through the mostly unspoiled landscapes, fertile green valleys, remote Berber villages, goat herds, wild herbs and snow-dusted peaks. When you visit, you’ll see a way of life, including flat-roofed homes made from the earth and stone, that’s barely changed over a thousand years, with the Berbers the original inhabitants, a civilization that dates back over eight millennia.
Colorful Marrakech is beautiful, exotic and mysterious city, with an exciting mix of old and new. Its thousand-year history is rich and turbulent, with a cast of characters that includes princesses and sultans, fortune hunters, slave traders, magicians and colonialist. In the centuries-old souks (markets), barrels overflow with spices like saffron, cinnamon, ginger and turmeric, tucked among the hookahs, tapestries, antiques and traditional clothing. The main square, Djemaa el Fna, is the place to be day with a wide range of food stalls featuring everything from aubergine fritters to steamed sheep’s head.
The gateway to the Sahara Desert, Ouarzazate is south of the High Atlas Mountains. Sometimes referred to as “Morocco’s Little Hollywood,” its exotic backdrop has been used as a filming site for everything from “Game of Thrones” to “Gladiator.” An ideal launching pad for the desert, gorges and mountains, the city is also a popular base for outdoor adventurers, with everything from sand surfing, camel treks and 4X4 safaris to climbing and hiking can be enjoyed from here. The town itself is quiet, but there are plenty of affordable and tasty eats, a souk and local stores for shopping.
Morocco’s capital city sits along the Atlantic coast at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg. It offers lots of charm with palm-lined boulevards and lovely outdoor cafes relatively free of traffic in ville nouvelle, while the picturesque walled medina is especially atmospheric and far less touristy than others. There are shops of craftsmen and traders, selling carpets, leather goods and Moroccan crafts. The evocative Kasbah of the Udayas is adjacent to the medina overlooking the sea, with its narrow streets lined with whitewashed homes, while Andalusian Gardens sits at its southern edge.

Things to do in Morocco
The Atlas Mountains stretch across Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, with the High Atlas of Morocco home to North Africa’s highest peak. It’s a hiker’s paradise with scenic routes that bring views of lush, green valleys, cliffs, waterfalls and rare birds as well as remote Berber villages. Other outdoor adventures can be enjoyed in abundance too, including 4X4 excursions and mule treks.
Located along the Atlantic coast, Essaouira attracts surfers from across the globe, while providing a chilled atmosphere and postcard-perfect looks with its blue and white medina surrounded by walls, gates, bastions, and towers. It’s a lovely place to stroll, with winding alleyways and a lively souk. Stop to relax with a steaming pot of mint tea and an ocean view.
Don’t miss the opportunity to dine at the Fes restaurant, set within a magnificently restored traditional home in the medina, framed by olive groves and the ancient walls. It has a rooftop for sipping cocktails with a view and an impressive French-Moroccan fusion menu that go beyond the usual tagine. Dishes like braised rabbit and yoghurt are inspired by local, seasonal produce.
The most impressive green space in Marrakech, this 2.5-acre botanical and artist’s landscape garden was created by French Oriental artist Jacques Majorelle. It includes a 1930s Cubist villa, while the garden provides a lush oasis with thick bamboo, rare flora, cactus and palm groves, with water lily-filled ponds, streams and a bright blue water fountain that matches the adjacent Berber Museum.
Historic Chefchaouen is nestled in the Rif Mountains, renowned for its spectacular medina. A walk through the narrow, cobbled alleyways feels as if you’re swimming, with everything splashed in various shades of blue. Especially atmospheric, it has a relaxed European feel with fabulous restaurants, open-air cafes, and many postcard-perfect photo-ops, particularly along Calle Side Buchuka and Callejon el Asri streets.
Enchanting Marrakech is home to many lively souks, which translates to marketplace or bazaar in Arabic. This is the original market town, with the souks serving as the heart of the medina as they have for a thousand years. There are more than 3,000 stalls selling everything from Berber rugs and leather goods to exotic spices, lanterns, tagines and scarves.
The Chaouara Tannery opened nearly a thousand years ago and is the largest in the city of Fes. Here you can watch leather being made and dyed, using traditional methods that date back to medieval times. Go in the morning to capture a shot of the colorful dyes from the terraces above. It’s one of the best places for purchasing high-quality leather goods.
Jemaa el Fnaa
The most famous square in Marrakech, Jemaa el Fnaa is located in the medina and serves as the epicenter of the city. The bustling atmosphere never slows, although it’s especially lively in the evening when it becomes a popular hub for entertainment and dining. Marvel at everything from musicians and monkey handlers to snake charmers while enjoying delicious bites from the food stalls.
Rabat’s medina, Chellah, near Rabat’s medina, is one of the country’s most significant historical sites. It includes walled ruins of a Roman town and a mosque, now overgrown with olive and fig trees, bamboo and flowers. An elegant minaret is now topped by a stork’s nest. A pool with resident eels attracts couples who believe feeding them boiled eggs is a fertility charm.
