What to do and see in Morocco
Experience a slice of Moroccan life unchanged for centuries in the exotic spectacle that unfolds every day in Marrakech's Djemaa el Fna. Explore the world's largest still-functioning medieval city at Fez el Bali and examine the stunningly decorative carving that covers the lavish Bou Inania Medersa in the Imperial city of Meknes.
Haggle for handmade crafts in ancient souks, wander winding lanes through mud-walled kasbahs and medieval medinas, ride camels through a sea of sand dunes, hike or bike mountain trails and in the shade of palm-fringed oases or hilltop villages, meet proud nomadic people who maintain ancient tribal customs.
Morocco offers a choice of compelling destinations and attractions for adventurous couples.
