There are a great number of things to see and do on a tailor-made itinerary to Morocco, from walking in the foothills of the Atlas mountains to staying in a luxurious desert camp in the Sahara. Morocco wears its culture on its sleeve, and you can see this in the everyday bustling souks, or on a visit to Berber settlements.
Innumerable historic sites and cities are waiting to be explored; Fez, Meknes, Marrakech and Rabat are all imperial cities, having all been the capital of Morocco at some point during its history. Fez is famous for its labyrinthine souks, whereas Meknes is smaller than its better-known counterparts, with well-preserved monuments from Sultan Moulay Ismail, who made Meknes his capital in the 17th century.
The current capital, Rabat, is located on the Atlantic coast and is home to a ruined mosque that was designed to be the largest in the world. A highlight of Morocco’s most popular city, Marrakech, is most certainly the bustling open-air market in the Djemaa el Fna main square. Other sights worth visiting in Marrakech include the Saadian Tombs, and the intriguing Bahia Palace.
Lastly, Essaouira is a delightful small fishing town that is well worth a visit, especially for those who are looking to relax at the end of their trip. In the mornings the harbour is a hive of activity, with fishing boats unloading their catches, and the small narrow streets are filled with charming craft shops.
