Set in scrubby desert some 240km (150 miles) south of Casablanca, the historic city of Marrakech, with its famed street markets and profusion of shops, is Morocco's premier tourism destination. Attractions here include world-class golf and displays of Berber horsemanship. The road is direct but very busy - allow three hours for the journey by car.
For tourism information, stop by Marrakech's Office National Marocain du Tourisme (ONMT) Place Abdel Moumen Ben Ali, Avenue Mohammed V, GuélizTel: +212 524 436 179.
Easily reached by train, bus or car, the partially walled Atlantic coast city of Rabat, 70km (43 miles) from Casablanca, is Morocco's interest-filled political capital and the nation's second largest metropolis (after Casablanca). It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2012. The tiny blue and white kasbah facing the Atlantic is gorgeous, but only one of the sights. La Tour Hassan, originally the minaret of a huge mosque, pivots in dominant fashion over the Bou Regreg River, while the beautiful enclosed Chellah is a peaceful complex of tombs and Roman ruins. Rabat's pirate history is evident in its urban twin, Salé, which sits across the river at the mouth of the ocean.Website: http://www.muchmorocco.com/locations/rabat/
