To begin with, package holidays in Morocco are perfect for relaxing on the beach. Bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, this sun-kissed country, equally has the advantage of being within close proximity of Europe: with just a 3 hour flight separating Paris and Marrakesh! As well as the country’s wide variety of beach resorts, Morocco is equally attractive for its beautiful cities. From Rabat to Ouarzazate via Casablanca and Fez, Arabian architecture and the atmosphere in the souks prevail in these medinas where the spice markets never fail to charm tourists. More to the South, a stay in Morocco will lead travellers to adventure across the Atlas and its wind-sculpted landscapes, before reaching the Sahara desert. Accompanied by a camel or not, the doors of the most immense desert in the world open to visitors in search for a change of scenery amongst the sand dunes.
Marrakesh comes high up in the list of essential things to do on a holiday to Morocco. Marrakesh has one of the biggest medinas in the country, along with that of Fez, it is a labyrinth where life flows to the rhythm of the bazaars. Another immense place not to miss whilst on holiday in Marrakesh is Jemaâ el-Fna Square. For those looking more for a beach holiday, Essaouira a peaceful city compared to the rest of Morocco and for good reason; it was built by a French architect, having been largely inspired by his past in Saint-Malo. At the same time the city also has Kasbahs and a medina. To explore the city, the ideal point of departure is the Moulay Hassan Square, recognisable by the many blue blinds and shutters surrounding it, the square is listed also as a UNESCO World Heritage site. In the North of Morocco, the region of Rif amazes visitors with its diversity. Long deserted by the King Hassan II, this region today is known for its European influences, notably Spanish. Thus, a holiday to Morocco will astound tourists, especially when coming across certain building structures influenced by Europe, in the heart of Tangier’s medina, the main city in the area. Thanks to its beaches, Agadir continues nevertheless to seduce tourists from all over the world, a city which was Portuguese, Spanish and French in the past.
