City tour of Casablanca and Rabat
We leave Marrakech at 07:30 AM to Casablanca,
Casablanca (Spanish for “White House” and generally abbreviated by locals as “Casa”) has long stood in the western imagination as a hub of romance. Casablanca has morphed into a modern financial and industrial hub. Today, nearly 4 million inhabitants from all over the world call Casablanca “home.” What Casablanca lacks in architectural history, it makes up for in modern conveniences: restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Though, to be sure, there are a few must-see sights in and around Casablanca.
One of the riches historical aspects of Casablanca is the Art Deco architecture left by French colonialists throughout downtown Casablanca. Many of these buildings are in various states of disrepair. However, an absolute must-see for Art Deco enthusiasts is the Cinema Rialto on rue Mohammed Qorri. And the famous Hassan II mosque designed by the French architect Michel Pinceau.
Departure to Rabat for a lunch in a restaurant after we walk around the Oudaia Kasbah which was built by Moulay Ismail from 1672 to 1727 to protect the city. we continue to Hassan Tower which is a gigantic mosque, emblematic of Rabat and famous for its unfinished
minaret where storks nest. And also visit the beautiful Mausoleum of Mohammed V decorated with stained glass window, white marble and a wrought-iron entryway.
We Return to Marrakech late in the afternoon.
