Casablanca, Morocco

City Panorama, Casablanca, Morocco

Introduction to Casablanca, Morocco

The most cosmopolitan of Morocco’s cities.

The biggest city in Morocco – and with chic bars and a wide choice of stylish restaurants – Casablanca sometimes has a southern European feel. The Old Medina is small, but the crowded streets and tiny, overcrowded shops are worth exploring. The art-deco Ville Nouvelle – a legacy from France – is very attractive: look for the enchanting Rialto Cinema.

Equally fascinating is the Jewish Museum, the only one of its kind in the Islamic world. It has excellent displays showing Morocco’s ancient synagogues, cemeteries and other Jewish landmarks.

Dominating the whole city is the breathtaking Hassan II Mosque. Built on a rocky outcrop of reclaimed land, it can accommodate over 25,000 worshippers inside – and another 80,000 in the courtyard. The 210m minaret is the tallest in the world: from the top a laser beam points the way to Mecca at night. Guided tours can be made of the vast interior, with its glass floor and marble walls.

Savour the magical city of Marrakech, the heart of the Berber south, with its magic, colours, ramparts, Medina and more!

Day One – Casablanca to Marrakech

Leaving Casablanca, you will travel to the most iconic Moroccan city – Marrakech. On arrival you will soon discover that it is more than just a city, it is a pearl polished by rich history. The third largest city in Morocco, after Casablanca and Rabat, lying near the foothills of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, Marrakech has a beautiful backdrop. The city is divided into two distinct parts: the Medina which is the historical city, and the new European modern district called Gueliz or Ville Nouvelle. The Medina is full of intertwining narrow passageways, souks full of colour and character and riads, which are often boutique hotels that normally accommodate a few rooms around a courtyard. In contrast, Gueliz plays host to modern restaurants, fast food chains and big brand stores.

Upon arrival to Marrakech, you will take a short drive past the iconic red rampart walls that encircle a large part of the city and are one of its premier sights. You will then check into your hotel – Les Jardins de la Koutoubia, Situated close by to the enchanting Jma El Fna Square,   where you will enjoy a typical Moroccan lunch before continuing your tour.

You will visit the Koutoubia Mosque which is the emblem of Marrakech. This square tower stands 77 metres (252 feet) tall, including its lantern. Built in the 12th century, the Koutoubia minaret is one of the most beautiful Islamic religious structures in North Africa. This famous landmark dominates the local skyline and can easily be spotted from all four corners of Marrakech. Here you will have the opportunity to capture some incredible photographs.

Next you will visit the Bahia Palace - its beauty makes it a remarkable example of Eastern architecture. During your visit you will appreciate why it took 15 years to complete. Then take the short drive into the Medina area - the heart and soul of Old Marrakech - to visit one of the jewels of the city – the holy site of Medersa Ben Youssef. The current structure of this Koranic school was built around 1570 and it is the biggest school in the whole of the west. Opposite the entrance, the Qoubba Almoravides was the ablution (Christian washing ritual) centre for believers going to the Ben Youssef Mosque.

Prepare for a leisurely walk through the labyrinth of souks. Souk Smarine is an important thoroughfare, traditionally dominated by the sale of Moroccan textiles, clothing and handicrafts. The maze of colourful alleys and small squares are home to a bewildering array of stalls and stands devoted to specific crafts. The spice souks are a photographer’s delight. Here you can take a look at the wonderful products the locals have to offer, perhaps even purchase a souvenir.

Following your visit to the souks you will then explore one of the best-known attractions in Marrakech – the Djemâa el Fna Square. Be enthralled by a multitude of street artists and stalls of dried fruit and freshly pressed orange juice. Over the years it has become the heart of Marrakech, where fire-eaters, mime artists, snake charmers and street musicians perform at every turn. A refreshment by the square offers a chance for you to admire and take in the spectacular atmosphere.

Having worked up an appetite you will return to the hotel, giving you the chance to freshen up and prepare for a delightful Moroccan dinner, served with wine, at one of Marrakech’s finest restaurants.

Day Two – Marrakech to Agadir

Following breakfast, enjoy some time at leisure appreciate the beautiful hotel and its facilities. Take a short drive into the centre of Marrakech - awaiting you, will be a horse-drawn carriage. Admire your beautiful surroundings as you embark on a leisurely ride to the stunning Majorelle Gardens which have been maintained by famous couturier Yves Saint-Laurent. Situated in the heart of the garden is the Berber museum which displays an elite collection of Berber objects originating from diverse regions of Morocco, from the Rif to the Sahara. Having ambled through the gardens you will then re-join the coach and head to a local restaurant for a hearty lunch. After lunch you will re-board the coach to travel to meet your ship in Agadir.

The Moroccan constitution states that Islam is the official religion of the state; however the Christian communities can openly practice elements of their faith, Christianity in Morocco dates back to the Roman times and today constitutes approximately 1.1% of the country's overall population. You will also discover the existence of a Jewish Museum in Casablanca, which makes Morocco the only predominantly Muslim country in the world that has a dedicated Jewish Museum.

Your first stop is at the Hassan II Mosque which crowns the achievement of King Hassan II. This phenomenal building is the world's third-largest mosque and it was built to commemorate the former king's 60th birthday, opening in 1993. It is the only mosque in Morocco where non-Muslims are allowed to enter inside. You will also note that the mosque is the tallest building in Casablanca, and means that Casablanca does not have any commercial high rise buildings.

From here you depart to the Catholic cathedral, which was built in 1930 using the Neo-Gothic style of architecture. It ceased to function as a church in 1956, after the independence of Morocco, it is now a cultural centre but well worth the visit to admire the beautiful architecture and delightful stained glass windows. After time spent admiring this impressive building, you depart to the Museum of Moroccan Judaism, one of the only institutions of its kind in the Arab world, which was reopened in Casablanca following months of renovations. On your return to the quayside, you will enjoy a drive via the United Nations Square for shopping at leisure.

Discover Rabat, the imperial capital city of Morocco, and immerse yourself in its history, culture and heritage.

Depart the quayside for your drive to the city of Rabat. Sitting on the Atlantic coastal plain, Rabat is the capital city of Morocco, and is a modern city with wide boulevards, gardens and white buildings. Rabat is a far cry from the other imperial cities of Marrakech and Fez, but no less steeped in history, with its origins dating back to the 7th century. This enchanting city is home to many historic monuments and features some impressively preserved relics from its Moorish past.

Your first stop will be outside the Royal Palace, where you can marvel at this fine example of Islamic architecture, with its impressive arches. Continue to the Chellah Necropolis, which was built in the 14th century by the Merinides. View the fortress with its Roman remains, and visit the Necropolis. You will also have the opportunity to admire the panoramic views before continuing to the Mohamed V Mausoleum. Sultan Mohamed V led Morocco to independence in 1956 and the country built a monument to honour him and express its gratitude. The exterior of the mausoleum comprises a magnificent white marble pavilion surmounted by a roof of green tiles. Inside the exquisitely crafted burial chamber, you find the white onyx tomb, which stands on a slab of mirror. This site is an architectural masterpiece and is truly a final resting place ‘fit for a king’.

The Hassan Tower is 44 metres (140 feet) high, although it was originally intended to reach 80 metres (260 feet). Majestic, although never finished, the tower was the brainchild of Sultan Yacoub El Mansour, whose ambition was to build the biggest mosque in the Muslim world. 200 columns mark out where it was to stand, reflecting the glory of the Almohad Empire which, in the 12th century, stretched as far as Tunisia and Moorish Spain.

From here you will drive to the Kasbah des Oudayas, named after the tribe who were sent to Rabat by Sultan Moulay Ismail to defend the city against Andalusian pirates and the Hornacheros. It also withstood the exploits of Yacoub El Mansour and Abd El Moumen, who built Jamaa El Atiq, the oldest mosque in Rabat, in around 1150.

Finally you will meander down the hillside to the colourful Andalusian Gardens, where you can enjoy a cup of Moroccan tea, overlooking the river and the city of Sale before your return journey back to Casablanca and your awaiting ship.
