Your journey begins as you board your flight, en route to Casablanca. Upon arrival, you are greeted by your expert guide and driven to the Imperial city of Rabat, the capital of Morocco and the residence of the King. An ancient walled city of trees and flowers, Rabat combines beauty and serenity, and it is steeped in history. The city itself is built on ancient Roman ruins. The main gate of the kasbah des Oudaias, the Bab Oudaia, is a beautiful example of true Moorish design. Within the walls of the Kasbah you’ll explore a delightful craft museum and an Andalusian garden, complete with a fountain and the sweet fragrance of orange trees. Following a seafood lunch, you’ll visit a Kasbah constructed by the Almohads in the 12th century. Rabat was later occupied by Muslims evicted from Spain in the 17th century and declared the capital of the region by the occupying French in the 20th. Even earlier waves of immigration are reflected in the exhibits of Roman, Carthaginian, and Phoenician artifacts on display at the Archaeology Museum.

Your home for the next two nights is the Hotel le Diwan MGallery by Sofitel. Centrally located in the heart of the imperial city, your hotel is within walking distance of many of the main sights in Rabat. Amenities include Wi-Fi internet access and spacious guest rooms combining noble materials and refined style. Overnight at HOTEL LE DIWAN MGALLERY.
