Highlights

To explore Morocco’s distinctive culture and explore its famous bazaars and Kasbahs you’ll need to head to its major cities. Start exploring the culture of Morocco in the port city of Casablanca. Over the centuries various empires vied for control of Casablanca, leaving behind a fascinating cauldron of culture and history, including crumbling Arabic fortresses and sacred tombs.

Follow the road from Casablanca to the imperial city of Fez – the world’s largest car free urban area. The absence of cars imparts a timeless feel to this city, which is the home of the world’s oldest active Arabian university. Further inland lies the city of Marrakesh, where travellers can walk the streets of the old town, browse bazaars, and visit important sacred sites including the Koutoubia Mosque and the world headquarters of the Bahia faith.

Morocco’s austere landscapes are also worth exploring. The Southern region of the country encompasses the sands of the Western Sahara, where visitors to the country can experience the silence and beauty of the desert, and visit the oases that dot the arid landscape. The central interior of Morocco is straddled by the Atlas Mountains – a series of snow-capped peaks and box canyons separating the west of Morocco from the harsh Saharan climate.
