About Imperial Cities

Rediscover the World offers a great selection of hotels, riads and excursions in the north of Morocco. The ancient and historic capitals of Morocco feature very strongly in this region - Fez, Meknes & Rabat plus, of course, Marrakech a little further south. Casablanca is included here because of its importance as a city in modern Morocco.

Fez is large and bustling but not as busy a tourist destination as Marrakech, Meknes is more relaxed but still bursting with history and both are ideal bases for the Atlas Mountains and the impressive ruins and mosaics at the Roman site of Volubilis. Rabat is one of our favourite cities in Morocco as it has the stately monuments and palaces of the capital plus a great relaxed atmosphere. Casablanca, although it has little of the charm or history of the other cities, is a very convenient stopover for first and last nights in Morocco and we highly recommend a visit to the very impressive Hassan II Mosque and maybe even Rick's Cafe.


"Thank you for organizing a lovely, relaxing, awe-inspiring holiday, with special attention to detail. We are planning to use your service on our next trip."

"My wife and I made a journey through Morocco during February. We decided that using trains and staying at riads would form a central part of our journey theme and are awfully glad we did. Our main advice and booking was aided by Andy and Dawn, Rediscover the World UK. We had a number of requests for guidance, all of which were met with patient, knowledgeable and practical responses. One city only offered very expensive options for a guide and we were left in no doubt that it was expensive and alternative solutions found. This is the mark of a good agent/adviser. One city had considerable restrictions on available accomodation owing to a music festival and still they managed to find something suitable. There was a lot of work involved in solving this, which we appreciate."
