1. Rabat
Stay
About the city: Even though Rabat is Morocco’s political and administrative capital, it is not a common touristic destination, but to discover Morocco’s essence it is a must to visit this imperial city. Located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg, Rabat is a city where tradition and modernity go hand in hand. Often regarded as dull by its big brother down the coast, Rabat has embraced modernity and it is developing a cosmopolitan atmosphere of its own. The truth is that the capital is more laid-back, pleasant and more provincial than Casablanca, but far less messy and frantic. Rabat has a long and rich history, and has had many influences from Phoenicians, Romans and Carthaginians to French and Arabic, and the city has plenty of monuments to show for it. Its Old Town, the quiet medina, was declared World Heritage Site in 2012. Behind its red ochre walls, the Old City preserves all the country’s traditions alive, with plenty of Moroccan craft shops and traditional tea houses. The fortified gates, its colourful magical white and blue walls and spectacular views of the ocean are a good enough reason to explore every inch in its streets. The beautiful enclosed Chellah, a peaceful complex of tombs and Roman ruins, is located in Rabat’s urban twin, Salé, 2km away from the capital’s city centre. Along Mohamed V avenue, embroider with palm trees, visitors will find the Parliament, the Al Sunna mosque, the Essais Garden and the majestic Royal Palace. An independent art scene is blossoming in the capital and there is an ongoing proliferation of galleries and spaces for visual arts. After a long day enjoying the town’s wide cultural offer, visitors should head to Agdal, the trendiest district of Rabat. Artists, hipsters and students alike crowd its cafes and restaurants. This modern coastal city, blessed by a Mediterranean climate, is lively, cheerful and safe. Rabat means refuge in Arabic, and it may not be a coincidence since this city offers visitors culture, stunning architecture, tradition and modernity all of it away from the all-inclusive crowd that swell other parts of the country.

2. El Jadida
Stay
About the city: An outstanding example of the interchange of influences between European and Moroccan cultures, El Jadida is a historic and romantic setting, a perfect place for a promenade and enjoying the sea. Due to its fortified walls facing the deep-sea, the Old Portuguese city functions nowadays as a charming seaside resort. Complete and unique witness in Morocco to the advent of this new style, the city becomes extremely under demand in the summer season with an influx of mainly Moroccan holiday-makers as well as many international visitors.

3. Essaouira
Stay
About the city: The most perfect place, to have the best of everything, with the greatest respect for nature. Essaouira is an outstanding and well preserved example of a mid-18th century fortified seaport town, with a strong European influence translated to a North African context. Mogador presents itself as a home to many small art galleries and crafts’ businesses and also known for its kite and windsurfing, with the powerful winds blowing almost constantly onto the protected, kind of waveless bay, which stands as one of the major fishing harbors of Morocco. Famous for the Gnaoua music festival, and also Sufi music, including "The Printemps Musical des Alizes" in the springtime and "Festival des Andalousies Atlantiques" in the autumn. This jewel of the Atlantic should not be missed when visiting Morocco.

6. Marrakech
Stay
About the city: Gateway to the desert and the south, Marrakech is overwhelming like no other imperial city of Morocco. Its reddish-pink streets and alleys are full of sounds, sights, smells and life. The mid-summer heat is enough to prostrate most tourists. The best times to explore Marrakech are early morning, early evening, and winter, during winter temperatures are mild, but fall significantly at night, due to the cold air from the High Atlas. The Djemaa El-Fna, Assembly of the Dead, is anything but what its name suggests. A hot and crowded market by day, the Djemaa really gets rolling at sunset when the entertainers invade. This chaotic outdoor circus offers a microcosms of Morocco at its most exotic. The huge audience clusters in tight circles around the diverse cast of performers. Almost every tour of Marrakech begins at the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, with its magnificent minaret presiding over the Djemaa. The minaret, crowned by a lantern of three golden spheres, is the oldest and purest surviving example of the architecture of the Almohads. The city’s two most breathtaking monuments date from the 16th century. Feast your eyes and cool off at the ornate Ben Youssef Madrassa, the largest Qur’anic school in North Africa. Even more lavish are the dazzling Saadian Tombs, modelled upon the interior of the Alhambra in Granada. The view from the terrace at the Badi Palace, now in ruins, is majestic. Close by we find the 19th century Bahia Palace. It is an ornate and beautiful palace with restful fountained gardens. To escape from the relentless midday sun, wander in the lush Menara Gardens and lounge in the charming lakeside pavilion. Marrakech is noisy, busy, dusty and chaotic. It is a visual and sensory banquet of colour, diverse cultures, architecture and design. Marrakech delivers an exotic and exciting taste of Africa and the best part is that it is only a few hours away from Europe by plane.
