Casablanca is a heady mix of architecture treasures that glisten with gold in the sunshine and dusty, old buildings. A sprawling city that brims with a cosmopolitan flair, Casablanca is Morocco's largest city and most hectic port. Sitting on the country's Atlantic coast, it blends a frenetic lifestyle with stylish restaurants and vibrant shopping opportunities, opening up in a destination that slowly starts living up to its Western counterparts.
Known as one of the imperial cities of Marocco, the opulent city of Fès is the country's oldest city, and it is split into two areas – Fès-el-Bali (old Fès) and Fès-el-Djedid (new Fès) – as some mystical fusion of an ancient Islamic past and the French influenced present. The endless Medina, which contains 9,500 streets, sells everything from jewellery to furniture, and you will also find crafts, carpets, leather goods and spices, as well as all the necessities for daily life.
A medieval city of drama, myth and mystery, Marrakech will captivate all who venture behind its ochre-coloured walls. Step inside and you will be transported back to a place and time that has been consigned to the annals of history. The winding alleys of the medina and the sights, sounds and smells of the souks, the human drama that is Djemaa el-Fna square and the Atlas Mountains rearing up in the background, make Marakech Morocco’s crown jewel.
