A flight to Rabat will land you in one of the world’s top travel places to visit, where you will be able to explore the exciting blend of modern metropolitan city and historic fortress. The Almohad ramparts and gates date back to the 12th century. Located on the stunning North Africa’s Atlantic coastline at the mouth of the mythical Bou Regreg river, where the magnificent Bouregreg marina has excellent facilities for yachts and boats. Rabat’s rich heritage resulting from ten centuries of changing rulers and empires has given the city an extraordinary legacy of historical sites. The picturesque Kasbah of the Oudaias fortifications, the unique minaret Hassan Tower and impressive necropolis at Chellah are witness to the many Mediterranean civilisations of this ancient place. The more historically recent colonial architecture is situated along wide well-kept palm-lined streets that are almost entirely free of traffic. The general atmosphere of Morocco’s capital city is pleasant and surprisingly laid back. Take a gentle stroll around the authentic old Medina which has a great selection of specialist shops, art galleries and wonderful restaurants and cafes. Explore the many local markets such as the thriving Souk Es Sebat, a shoe market overflowing with handcrafted barouches, leather goods and exquisite jewellery and the busy Rue des Consuls market where copper, fabric and deep pile carpets are crafted by artisans as you watch.
It is advisable to have a good map when travelling around the city, especially when using the buses, to check you get off at the correct stop. There are two tram lines between Rabat and Salé that run every 10-20 minutes. They are a good way of getting around the area and fares are very economical. There are a variety of interesting city tours available that are well worth trying. Exploring the city by foot is a great way to soak up the atmosphere and get to experience the real charm of this vibrant city.
