About Imperial Cities

Rediscover the World offers a great selection of hotels, riads and excursions in the cities of Morocco. The ancient and historic capitals of the country are Fez, Meknes, Rabat and Marrakech a little further south. Casablanca is included here because of its importance as a city in modern Morocco, although it is not strictly an "Imperial City".

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 Mid 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, particularly in the kasbah. 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 (although this has NO direct connection to the film).

We look forward to being of service.
