If you prefer to travel in smaller, more intimate groups, this tour will give you the perfect opportunity to experience highlights of the cities of Rabat and Casablanca. It combines the modern aspect of the economic and business center of Casablanca and the historical elements of Rabat with its ancient culture and a mixture of Phoenician, Islamic and Andalusian civilizations. After an approximately 1 1/4 hour drive, you’ll arrive at Rabat, capital of Morocco and one of the four imperial cities. See the vast courtyard outside the Royal Palace and the 12th century Hassan Tower gracefully dominate the ruins of a mosque.
The Mohamed V Mausoleum is the resting place of the father of Moroccan independence and one of your stops. In the old town, discover the fascinating Andalusian garden of the Oudaya Kasbah and its Moorish cafe overlooking the Bou Regreg River. See where the Roman town of Sala stood outside the walls of Rabat, and the remnants of a fortified cemetery built in the 14th century, known by most at the gardens of Chellah, one of the most visited sites in Rabat. Enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. Your return drive to Casablanca will include a brief tour with a photo stop at Hassan II Mosque, and a brief shopping stop at United Nations Square.
