Rabat is one of the four imperial capitals of Morocco, and the Kingdom of Morocco`s current capital. It is built on a cliffside overlooking the Atlantic coast. The Bou Regreg River separates Rabat from its sister city on the other bank, Salé. Sights of note in Rabat include the Royal Palace, the primary residence of King Mohammed VI and Princess Lalla Salma; Hassan Tower, a solitary minaret built in the late 12th century for a mosque that was never completed; the Old Town, comprised largely of a cliffside fortress called the Kasbah of the Udayas, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and the Necropolis of Chellah, built by the Phoenicians during the third century BCE.
A journey along Morocco's northern coast, with cities brimming with exotic mystery, interesting history and captivating sea views. Start in Tangier (rich in history; often called Europe’s gateway to Africa); then, continue to Rabat (Morocco's capital rests along the shores of the Bouregreg River and the Atlantic Ocean); and after that, Casablanca (the inspiring Hassan II Mosque and its Old Medina stand out). From there a private transfer will take you to your last destination, in Marrakech (with its walled Medina and the worldwide open market: "Jemaa el-Fnaa"). Enjoy private transfers between the previous cities, with stops to explore the following: Asilah (a former Portuguese resort town, famous for its souk, annual art festival, and its medina) and Sale (famous for its iconic Great Mosque and its band of pirates which featured in Daniel Defoe's masterpiece Robinson Crusoe). This is a flexible vacation package. Select your number of nights in each city, desired hotel and activities.
