As the largest city in Morocco, Casablanca’s the country’s biggest industrial centre and main Atlantic seaport. But, of course, it’s famous throughout the world for the Hollywood hit with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. This tour will introduce you to the main attractions of this modern metropolis, taking in sights like the Corniche Boulevard, D'Anfa Boulevard, the Mahkama - Palace of Justice and more. Marvel at the exterior of Hassan II Mosque, the largest religious monument in the world after Mecca. Then visit the famous Church Notre Dame de Casablanca. After this, we’ll make a quick stop at the colourful 'Habous Market' for you to see handicrafts and perhaps do a little souvenir shopping.
Begin your Moroccan adventure with a tour of Casablanca, the largest city in the country. Start your morning with a drive around Casablanca’s most important attractions, like the Notre Dame Church. The highlight of your tour, however, is a visit to the Hassan II Mosque, the largest religious monument in the world after Mecca. It took 3,300 traditional Moroccan artisans to create the beautiful mosaics, marble floors and the splendid wood ceilings. The mosque also has the world’s tallest minaret, soaring 200 metres above the city. And before returning to your ship we'll even squeeze in a little shopping time at the 'Olive Market' and Habous Quarter.
Set more or less in the middle of Morocco's Atlantic coastline, Rabat is Morocco's political and administrative capital and the official residence of the King. Set in a rich, amber-coloured landscape, dotted with distinctive nettle trees, it combines ancient history with modern culture. On arrival, you’ll stop at the King’s Palace for an exterior visit. Then step back in time as you take in exterior views of the Roman ruins of Chellah, Hassan Tower and go inside the Merinides Necropolis. Then, you’ll head to the prestigious Mohamed V Mausoleum, considered to be the 8th wonder of the world. Finally, make one last stop at the Andalusian Gardens of the Kasbah of Oudayas, which date back to 17th-century.
